    Barb Gertz's Note:

    An exotic way to use those large Zucchini from the garden. The yogurt sauce is a delicious, garlicky treat. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice and a vegetable side dish.

      I was a bit disappointed in this recipe after the two great reviews it received. The part I felt needed improvement was the filling. It reminded me of filling for cabbage rolls, only it didn't have much taste. The filling was rather bland and needed extra spices or something. The part I did like, was the yogurt sauce topping. The yogurt gave the recipe the one zip of flavor. This wasn't a bad dish, it just wasn't flavorful enough for me. So I rated it OK.
