I followed this recipe to the T. It is certainly a "doer again". I would use whole eggs next time, but that is just my preference. I don't care for egg subs. I did love the combination of spices and it was a nice change from basil, etc. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

First of all - its really nice to see some people post recipes that are low in fat and calories! I just made this for dinner and it hit the spot! I didnt have any zuchinni, but used spinach, and instead of the egg whites I used egg substitute (I might try egg whites next time). I really liked the spice combination that went into the eggs, I didnt even realize my eggs were fake! Thanks!
