Might have missed something in this recipe, but as soon as I grated the zucchini & carrot I realized that I'd need much more than that for just 2 people much less the amount needed for 8 ~ So I used 3 zucchini & 3 good sized carrots, increasted the garlic to 2 cloves & used 1 1/2 rounded cups of monteray jack for the filling in 4 flour tortillas! A bit different than the recipe called for, but my concern was to make 4 nice, full wraps that 2 people could have for a meal! VERY TASTY, & another time I might actually use crepes instead of the tortillas! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted Joeys in the Aus/NZ Special Recipe Swap #19]
This was delicious...but next time, I would at least double the veggies, maybe even triple them! My husband and I used fat free cheese slices (2 inside and 2 out) and it was plenty. It reminded us of lasagna. I also made our own crepes using a recipe for german pancakes! I think it would be a great meal for a mom trying to get her children to eat their veggies!
