This recipe is always a hit. In fact, I usually have to double it, and still there are no leftovers. The crumb topping is flavored with bits of onion.—Alison Relkov, Cochrane, Alberta

"Everyone just LOVES this recipe. I finally have a use for all my tomatoes and zucchini from my garden! I'm gonna start playing with this and try ricotta cheese or fresh mozzarella to make it more of a veggie lasagna."

"It was good, but I think it would be better with more of the cheese mixture and more of the bread crumb mixture."

"Imsauted garlic, onion and zucchini together. Used an Italian mix of cheeses. Used my crumb topping for tomato crumble. So, I guess that you can play with it a bit and it is still good. Zucchini is very mellow."

"This was excellent. I used a shredded Italian cheese mix, and it really had a lot of flavor vs plain mozzarella. Next time I will add the garlic to the onion saute instead of putting it in with the cheese."
