Top Review by Peachie Keene

I rarely leave reviews anymore because I am seldom online, but this recipe was worthy of finding a way to get online JUST to give it the 5 stars it deserves!! This dish is so so so AMAZING! One of the few ways my hubby will eat zucchini; this has become one of our favorite meals. Thank you so much for posting it!!
