This recipe comes from Martha Stewart…the photo is also hers.I don’t usually post someone’s recipes with out tweaking in to make it more to my liking first.

But I believe this is perfect just the way it is. Although if you see it posted again by me, I’ll have found a way to change it up a bit. This is just another way of using zucchini “ which I love “ !!!!!
