This is indeed restaurant quality! Super easy and super quick! I used black beans with garlic. Would have put more garlic in except I was serving it to lots of people but I will for next time! I am not sure what size of zucchini they use to require SIX....I only used 3 medium zucchini for quadruple the recipe and it was plenty!
