I found this recipe in a local newspaper years ago and have adapted it by using low fat ingredients where ever possible. It tastes great either way. Serving size is 2 tbls.

- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place zucchini in a microwave safe colander and place colander over a microwave safe dish.
- Microwave on high for 4 minutes to allow some of the excess liquid to escape.
- Allow to cool and squeeze with hands or press with wooden spoon against side of colander to remove as much liquid as possible.
- Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix together Swiss cheese, reduced fat cream cheese, 1/2c reduced fat parmesan cheese, reduced fat sour cream,reduced fat mayonnaise and Mrs.
