    I had most of the veggies in our garden. Great way to use those extra tomatoes and zucchini. I used garlic powder instead of a whole bulb but it wasn't enough flavor so I added oregano and basil. Turned out great.

    I would love to make this I was wondering if the whole bulb of garlic was used?
