this is a really easy dish that is always received well when i make it for company. its even pretty good with less or none of the cheese if you want something more healthy.

This was very easy to put together and tasted great...I made the following changes/additions simply because of what I had in the frige...added about 1/3 cup cooked brown rice to the filling mixture and a few splashes of veggie stock, used a Mexican blend of cheeses in the filling and on top of the zukes. Next time, I will skip the lemon juice as I didn't care for the tang. But, I didn't measure exactly...I just squeezed the lemon over the pan so I may have added too much. Thanks for a great recipe!
