This is a company-worthy dish and one of our long-time favorites! We especially love the flavor of this dish and the way the zucchini stays firm and green during baking. It makes a nice presentation, too. People will think you slaved over this, but it is so easy, that it is embarrassing. Great dish for potlucks. Excellent alternative to the Green Bean Casserole. This recipe serves 4, but ingredients can be easily increased to serve a crowd. Enjoy!
