      My husband has an aversion to anything green, so I didn't tell him about the zucchini until AFTER he raved about this recipe. Now he wants me to make some more up for spaghetti, meatball subs and possibly a meatball soup. I loved the consistency of these and the flavor was incredible!

      A very nice, unexpected combination. I added a bit of ground coriander, it complements the zucchini very good. Even my husband liked it. I will make it again.
