What a wonderful supper we had last night. This recipe turned a few simple ingredients into a real tasty and very simple meal. I used medium size zucchini. I think I used a little more than 1/2 cup cheese. I just added until it looked right. Cook time was just right. Thanks Sharon. You have some wonderful vegetarian recipes.
