With my garden thriving this year I'm using up some of my Zucchini and Squash next weekend when the family is due in from Seattle. Haven't found a family member or friend that doesn't like this dish. My Son-in-law will come in and eat it cold from the frigerator if there is any leftovers. I've had it on my cooking site for years now and always get a good response from other people trying it. It takes a little time to make, but all your effort is worth it.
