    It was good, but we only did a third of the recipe and still had too much! Maybe it's because I went light on the toppings. I enjoyed it, but hubby who made the dish had problems getting the batter to stick to the zucchinis when frying them. It was very tasty.  -  03 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Very good, but again, very fattening. I used low fat sour cream, so that might help a little!  -  24 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
