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
