 Our Thoughts:

Although the girls opted to have hot dogs instead of even trying this dish, we felt it was incredible. So glad we par cooked the zucchini because the texture of the zucchini was almost like eating noodles. We used fat free ricotta and fat free mozzarella and you couldn’t even tell the cheeses were fat free.  The sauce enhanced the zucchini with a hearty robust flavor. We were reluctant to use ground chicken but chose to use it anyway which was surprisingly delicious.
