    I love the plastic massive blob of cheese on the top of this. And what an exotic recipe. My mother approves!

    This is an awsome recipe! My Mother used to make this, and I make it now for my family–we all cant wait to make this when the eggplant and Zucchini are ready in our garden. I still have this recipe card handed down to me from my Mother. 😀
