    Oh my gosh, that looks delicious! I had a similar dish several years ago and failed to find a recipe. Thanks for posting this!
    I recently found a fabulous website called foodgawker that I highly recommend for the pictures and searchability, plus new ideas. I tried the stuffed zucchini cups and they were amazing, although I did leave out the raisins because I’m one of those who think warm raisins in savory dishes are just plain wrong!

    Hi facesarefunny, You are more than welcome. I hope you enjoy it. I happen to agree with you about the raisins, my husband makes a fab kugel but I can NOT eat the raisins. Warm Raisins are wrong! hee hee.
    Sweet Greens.
