In a welcome change from all of the heavy lasagna noodles, this recipe may even be a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies. Young and old(er)alike will enjoy this!

Wife and I really enjoyed this dish tonight, but....the instructions on whether or not the zuchini should be sauted with the onions/garlic not real clear. I did not and the squash just did not cook enough for my taste in the baking process.
