Comments

Fast, low cost and so yummy! Wasn't sure I would like this one but it was great! I didn't have parm so used mozzarella, had some fresh garlic to use up so roasted it and used instead of powder, was a bit short on canned tomatoes so added 1 fresh chopped tomato. This will be a regular recipe in our house during zucchini season!
