A very interesting way of serving zucchini. I found this recipe some years ago and modified it to give it a very delightful taste.

This is a great recipe! I did use fresh rosemary and subbed pine nuts for the almonds b/c one of my guests is very allergic to tree nuts. Didn't bother with the sail - didn't have any red peppers! Will add sail when my granddaughter visits! Thanks, Uncle Bill!
