This is one of my favorite summer recipes. I adapted it to our taste from a recipe I found online. It originally called for okra in place of the zucchini and I thought even green beans would be good. All kinds of possibilities with different vegetables and seasonings. It is low in calories and fat, too! Enjoy!!
