This was very good and my husband did not complain that there was not enough meat. I used a mandoline to cut a large zucchini length wise. I would turn the zucchini to the next side when I got close to the center seedy part. A little olive oil was used on the slices before roasting them. I roasted the zucchini about 10 - 15 minutes, turning the slices half way through. I will definitely make this again. I'm also going to email this recipe to my sister, as I know she will like it.

I made this recipe with lean ground beef. The taste is amazing. DH doesn't really like dishes with cottage cheese but he liked this one. Thanks Chef Lulu :) Made for PAC Fall 2012
