From "Cooking Up a Storm, the Teen Survival Cookbook" by Sam Stern. This is a clever creation! *Variation: Hummus instead of cream cheese. Both sound good to me.

    A really good sandwich. I am a vegetarian and my boyfriend eats vegetarian mostly, because that is all I buy and cook for him lol. So it was awesome to find a new vegetarian sandwich that is delicious! I would like to try pbmail_box's version. It sounds really good! I think there are quite a few variations that could be made. The cream cheese could be seasoned, extra toppings could be added, various breads could be used, etc. I'm glad I tried this recipe!

    WOW!!! These are incredible! I had them open face and used itallian potato rosemarry bread. Since I had no fresh herbs on hand I thinly sliced a garden fresh tomato and onion to place on top. My neighbor came over just as I was assembling the last sandwich. She tried it and loved it too! It was the perfect light summer dinner with a glass of white wine!

    Oh my God. Sooooo good. I used Cilatnro and mini baguettes. My new favorite sandwich! Be careful not to cook the zucchini too long or the sandwich gets too messy. Womderful, wonderful recipe!

    This makes one mean sandwich! I varied a bit and used garlic olive oil and left out the salt and herbs. This is at its best hot once cold the zucchinis go a little mushy. Tip The best slices are about 1/2 cm thick they go really brown and curring a few ribbons using a peeler makes crispy slices that add to the texture of the sandwich.
