This was excellent!!!! My new favorite sandwich. I can't wait to share this with my DD in college I know she'll love it too! I cut this done to make 1 sandwich. I grated the onion, minced the garlic, used a heaping 1/8 t of each the basil and Mexican oregano then cooked it all at once. I used Arnold Select Sandwich Thins Multi Grain, 1 Sandwich thin. This came out from under the broiler so delicious. I could have eaten the whole recipe of these! Made for *Healthy Choices ABC Tag 2009* game

This was so easy and sooo good. I did lightly butter the toast. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was very satisfying for a meatless meal.

This was an interesting concept for me. I knew that I liked all of the flavors, as I often do a sauteed sliced zucchini, onion, garlic and herb mix as a side dish with dinner. However, using it as a topper to toast was a new idea. The dense bread makes it hearty while healthful at the same time and a change of pace for my lunch.
