    Oolala's Note:

    From "Cooking Up a Storm, the Teen Survival Cookbook" by Sam Stern. This is a clever creation! *Variation: Hummus instead of cream cheese. Both sound good to me.

      This makes one mean sandwich! I varied a bit and used garlic olive oil and left out the salt and herbs. This is at its best hot once cold the zucchinis go a little mushy. Tip The best slices are about 1/2 cm thick they go really brown and curring a few ribbons using a peeler makes crispy slices that add to the texture of the sandwich.

      WOW!!! These are incredible! I had them open face and used itallian potato rosemarry bread. Since I had no fresh herbs on hand I thinly sliced a garden fresh tomato and onion to place on top. My neighbor came over just as I was assembling the last sandwich. She tried it and loved it too! It was the perfect light summer dinner with a glass of white wine!
