This recipe will tempt those anti-zucchini eaters! I could eat a whole pan myself! Have had this recipe for 20 years. Can be made ahead & baked before serving.

I liked this recipe. This is a tasty recipe with lots of flavour. I used rather over sized Zucchinies. I followed that recipe step by step except for the size of the zuchinies. The only think that I found was the there was a rather a large amount of liquid, which I might add was very tasty. This may have been due to the size of the zucchini. I will make this recipe again, however, I will make sure that the zucchini is meduim size. Thank you for posting this recipe Helen.
