Really Awesome Broccoli/Zucchini Veggies

Andy Anderson !


These are so yummy. They have a zucchini base with a broccoli, a bit of provolone, and parmesan, and there you go.

They make an awesome appetizer for your hungry guests, or as an attractive veggie when combined with other items.

We eat first with our eyes, and this dish has brilliant presentation.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
