What a quick and easy way to use zucchini from the garden, (we're always looking for new ways!) We've enjoyed this several times this summer using cherry tomatoes from the garden and using canned also. I've changed up the cheese, too. Being out of mozzarella, I've also used pepper jack. Delicious and versatile recipe!
