Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I make this when the zucchini at our store looks good or when I am in the mood for it. This version is healthier than the way I make it. I use a can of tomatoes, but I will definitely make it this way from now on. The canned has way too much sodium.

If diet allows for extra carb some shredded cheese added just before eating makes this even more scrumptious...IT'S OH SO GOOD!
