We loved this! The landlord had given us some ginormous summer squashes (the "yellow zucchini", lol) from his garden, and I was looking for a different way to prepare them. Oddly enough, I was a bit skeptical of the cheese in this before trying it, but we both really enjoyed it. DH actually had two big servings of it with dinner (usually he asks for a second helping of the protein, but rarely the veggies). I'll have to keep this recipe on hand for zucchini season, thanks for posting! Made for The Honeys for ZWT8

This was so good - I adjusted the recipe for 1 pound of zucchini. This turned out great and the flavors were fabulous...loved the cheese and this went great with our TexMex dinner tonight. Will definitely make this again as it's a nice variation for zucchini. I sliced mine a little thicker than called for and they baked up without getting too soggy.

Mmmmm :) yes, we liked this very much :) I did use more tomatoes and their sauce, but thats okay, we do like lots of sauce. And I didn't realise that I had used up all my mozzarella, so I had to use grated cheddar, and I crumbled a little feta on top of that. Really good way to use a vegetable that is always readily available and usually well-priced. We enjoyed this with Butternut Squash Basmati Rice, all in all a lovely vegetarian meal :) Made for Family Picks, ZWT8
