    alvinakatz's Note:

    My mother used to make this for us when we were kids, and we would gobble them up. It's the dish that got DH liking zucchini. It looks very festive at a dinner party and isn't that much trouble to make.

      This was FABULOUS!! I made one zucchini per person & should have made at least two! Easier with a bigger zucchini & comes out just as good. I threw the olives into the processor with everything else (to hide from olive-hating hubby) and used panko crumbs instead of crackers. Came out so good everyone was clamoring for more. A great way to serve up those 7,000 zucchini that come out of the garden every summer, I'll be making these often.
      Note: a melon baller would make scooping out the zucchinis easier; I couldn't find mine & it took forever to scoop them with spoons, knives, etc.

      I made a few adjustments - I wasn't sure how much lemon juice to use b/c the ingredients just said 1 lemon. So I used about 2 Tbs. I will use less next time - a bit too lemony. My food processor died, so just chopped everything real fine. Used about 1 1/2 tsp. garlic salt instead of a clove. I also added a little olive oil with the other stuff as well as a drizzle on top. Like a few others, I just used one large zucc, but scooped out and removed the seedy part. And a melon baller is very helpful! Made for Culinary Quest 2014

      I did it with a few changes.I had big zucchini from the garden to use, so I decided to slice them to make rounds. Big zucchini are full of water, so before loading this i placed the oiled slices under the broiler until they began to change color.I placed the crumbs on the slices, then the tomatoes paste, then the cheese, I added little oregano and I topped them with a mixture of sliced olives and pickled peppers.I placed them in the oven again at 200°C/400°C until I saw that the cheese begun to turn light brownl, In this way I got mini margairta pizzas on zucchini slices. So cute, I will make them again to serve as appetizer.Made for Culinary Quest 2014
