    If I'm not mistaken, Recipezaar calculates the Nutrition facts, not the contributor. This does sound like a great recipe, light tasting and easy. I think I'll try it very soon!

    Recipe was pretty easy, but the directions should include to dry out zucchini before cooking, b/c the first batch I made was very mushy. Otherwise, good!

    The recipe although it sounds easy and delicious can't possibly have the calories, fat, carbs and protein listed. I would love to try it.


I've lived in New York my entire life and I'm married to my hubby Brian for over 40 years. We have 3 grown children, our dogs and cats to fill our lives and our home. In the mundane world I work for a pharmaceutical company. The cooking fun starts once I get home (don't care to do fast foods) coming up with quick easy meals and making more involved recipes on the weekends. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes and flavors for my family. I could sit for hours just researching recipes and coming up with ideas. My other hobbies are coloring & decorative painting, making craft items, a bit of sewing, a bit of crocheting.
