    quick and easy to make and really tasty. I made it with cheddar cheese rather than parmesan, and it was great. Will make again.  -  04 Sep 2010


    Just made this with a marrow we were given and will definately make again! I used cheddar, but a stronger cheese would have been better, and I used wheat free flour as Im gluten intolerant! Next time Im going to try using butternut squash,or even sweet potato and will maybe add some chili flakes!  -  03 Nov 2012


    I really enjoyed this recipe. It wasn't one of the families favourites but I loved the simplicity and the fact that its another way of using the many courgettes out of the garden!! Will make again.  -  04 Sep 2009
