Zucchini!!! :star_struck: Oh goodness do I love zucchini- as a main course, side dish, or snuck into desserts, it’s the perfect summer food. A shame my partner detests it :sweat_smile:

But seeing this recipe with sausage and cheese… hmm, perhaps I can make my picky eater see the joy of zucchini after all! :joy::+1:

Thanks so much for this recipe, @Amethyst! :heart:

I’ll have to keep trying with different recipes! Thanks again for sharing your great finds- I certainly enjoy them! :pray::heart:
