Boy was this good!!! I made a few changes, only because I had it on hand. I had one huge zucchini in the garden (12 inches). I added a large handful of fresh spinach to the mixture instead of the parsley and 3 strips of leftover cooked bacon instead of the mushroom. My husband LOVED this recipe and insists on it again this week. Thanks so much for posting.

This recipe is excellent! I browned sausage and put it on the bottom and added the rest of the ingredients on top. YUMMO!

Fabulous recipe! I substituted tofutti cream cheese (soy based) for the real thing since I am lactose intolerant and it worked great.
