i made this with eggplant instead of zucchini: Delicious. I used low fat cheese and minimal amounts of oil. I think I managed to get it down to a 6 point weight watchers meal from 11 points! I will make this again.
This is time consuming to make. It was ok but I think it was my fault. I used sausage and cooked it with garlic gloves, green pepper, and onion. Used a sausage flavored spagehtti sauce. I drained everything really good and halfed the cheese but still came out greasey. I will try again with ground beef next time. I also thought the zuchinni was gonna turn into a crust but it didn't.
