"This is a very flavorful change from the everyday zucchini recipes I make. As we all know, when zucchini is abundant, it's easy to run out of ideas! I will make this again for sure."

"Made this for Christmas dinner vegetable so tripled the recipe. Everyone loved it!!! I did add more of the lemon pepper seasoning and pesto than the recipe called for. I tripled what it called for and then kept adding until I thought it had enough flavor. I also added fresh parmesean on top and it looked so delish when it was all melty."
