    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


    This was a big hit! I combined everything together along with garlic powder. We needed a new zucchini dish and this was perfect. Thank You!  -  20 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really liked how the bread crumbs made the zucchini get nice and crispy in the oven. I love zucchini in general, and it was nice to change it up. The only thing I didn’t like about this recipe  -  29 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
