I followed directions for most part. I used two unpeeled yellow crock neck and one peeled green zucchini
I sautéed the Vegs w galic salt. Other than that I sprinkled mozzarella on top. Very good vegetarian dinner. I would add fresh spinach next time or gr turkey for the protein
We all enjoyed this a lot. Next time, I will chop up the basil leaves for the inner layer--finding a whole one in a bite was a little much!
Enjoyed this recipe. Very tasty and loved the zucchini and squash in it. I didn't have the shredded parmesan on hand, subtstituted part-skim mozzarella and turned out wonderful..Excellent!
I loved everything about this recipe. I made a half recipe as I cooked it for myself. It was easy to assemble and tasted delicious. Now I'm wishing I had made the full recipe!
I have made this a couple times now and my family really likes it. It is like a veggie lasagna, but with ravioli instead of lasagna noodles. It was easy to assemble and made great leftovers. The only thing I changed the second time around was how much squash I used. The recipe calls for too much for our tastes so I only used one of each the second time around.
