CNY A Taste Of Utica: Zucchini Appetizers

by Joanne on August 23, 2009

This recipe was donated by Rainie Piccione, from Dolores Cecere Piccione.  It is amazingly light and tasty.  I cut it into 9 squares using a 9×9 square pan but to serve more, you can certainly get 18 smaller squares out of this delicious dish.

        I have some zucchini that my grandma gave me from her garden just waiting to be used, and I think I found just the recipe to make! This looks and sounds delicious. Do you think this would reheat well in the microwave or might I be better off making a smaller batch?

          Heather: Anytime. Thanks for commenting.
          Liz: Depending on your tastes, you may want to change the cheese to something with a little more flavor or even add some of your favorite spices.
