    Courgettes can sometimes turn out a bit tasteless and soggy but this dish was tasty with the cheese and oregano and the breadcrumbs gave it a nice crunch.  -  31 Jan 2017


    I wish I had not sliced it quite as thin as it appeared in the photo, but it was good.  -  19 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
