    I am looking for recipes to use up zucchini. My kids normally don't like zucchini and they didn't like the dish as much, only because they could see the zucchini. If I could chop it up, they might like it better. You can't taste it with the other ingred. It tastes like regular lasagna. I used 2 eggs, homemade sauce (w/meat) and reg. mozzarella. I was a little short on the ingred, so I baked in an 11x7 for 50 minutes. DH will like this tomorrow for lunch. After step 10, it forgets to tell you what to do with the other half of ingred.

    We loved the end product on this, but the instructions had some big holes. I guessed and just layered the stuff like a lasagna, since it doesn't say beyond the first level. We really enjoyed the way this worked, though. It tasted like a regular lasagna and it wasn't easy to tell that it was zuchinni. Another great way to use up zuchs. Thanks!


I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
