  1. I am always looking for a new way to fix vegetables that is loaded with taste and this is one of them! I chose to leave out the crumbled bacon as I was afraid it would overpower the delicate flavor of the zucchini, but I loved the subtle flavor the bacon grease added to the dish. The herbs add a subtle undertone that compliments all the vegetables perfectly. The tender yet crisp texture of the zucchini adds yet another dimension to the chewiness of the melted cheese and the soft tomato/celery/onion/herb mixture. I will make this as often as I feel I can get away with it. I could eat it as a meal all by myself. Thanks Irmgard for sharing this spectacular recipe.


<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src=http://images.quizilla.com/H/h0t5auce/1108834307_brown_answer.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/532663/cookswithcattitude.JPG alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/CalendarGirlsSwap2009.jpg alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
