    4. Hi Gina,

      Lately I've been slightly scraping out the seeds of the zucchini to make a "well" then adding 1/2 a tablespoon of parm and sprinkling it with shake n bake then baking with dinner. It's GREAT!

    9. I think these would be great topped with some chevre as a side for grilled chicken! Hahaha the chevre would probably up the point count, woudln't it?!

    21. I'm a newbie...can you use regular zucchini? About 2 cups?

      ReplyDelete
    22. Sure, cut them in quarter sized wedges, 2 cups is about right.

I love the fact that you have a ton of veg recipes! I'm a newbie and excited to try many. I did the chicken with feta last night and there was none left! Does that tell you anything???

    30. I picked up some baby zucchini at the store and wasn't sure what to do with it. So, I googled baby zucchini recipes and look what came up first. I should have checked here first. Thanks again, Gina!!!

    31. I have a question about the calorie count on this dish. My calorie count in the olive oil is 120 per tablespoon. I just wanted to know how it added up to 87.3? On another note, I LOVED this recipe, I made it tonight. Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    32. I have a question abou the points. Where does the 3 points come from. 1 tablespoon of olive oil is 3 points - and if the recipe is for two people shouldn't the points be 1 or 2? Im just curious where the points came from other than the olive oil. Im thinking maybe I havent been accuratly counting my cooked vegetables if these are 3 points!
      Thanks!

    33. Getting zucchini out of the garden now. Pinning this to try!

      ReplyDelete
    34. This is one of my favorite, quick go-to meals when I'm needing extra veggies for the day. And it goes with about any protein: fish, chicken, pork.
