    HEP MEP's Note:

    My daughter despises zucchini, but my husband and I love it, so this is an easy way for us to get our "fix" and it's the perfect amount for the two of us. If I'm baking something else in the oven, I'll just put this in till the meat or whatever is done, then crank up the broiler and top it off in there. And of course, you can use more cheese or anything else you desire.

      MEP, my darling, your daughter doesn't know what's good eating! This was sublime, more than sublime, it was decadent, since I ate most of the whole thing myself. 4 servings my big fat tushy, do you know what happens if you put this dish down in front of a Somersizer or an Atkin's dieter? It's not pretty, let me tell you! I cut the zukes into spears, and cooked them with an onion soup cube instead of the chicken bouillon. I also spread the spears out in the oven, did not layer them, so they sort of became cheesy zuke fries. By the time I was making my third batch I had it down to a science, with a sprinking of granulated garlic on the spears before sprinkling on the cheese, and then a light powdering of some Hungarian paprika. MEP, I sing your praises on a regular basis, thank you!

      This has to be one of the best of the least in my t&t cookbook! It was so easy to prepare, and so good. The chicken bouillon added depth to the squash. I keep repeating to myself, "simple is best, simple is best". We loved the cheese combination. I made it like you posted, then I added a pinch of Chimayo chile flakes on top before serving. Sesame seeds would be good too I think. Thanks MEP for sharing your recipe and making me look good :-)
