  • This was great. I substituted an ounce of stale Kalamata olive wheat bread for the saltines, used fresh spices and garlic, and grated a little parmesano reggiano over the top. Great idea! - 4/16/07

  • Very similar to the zucchini boats I've been making for years. I like the idea of using crackers to hold the filling together. I top with VT Sharp Cabot Cheddar, & include peppers in the veg mix, also steam zucchini till just tender before filling. I'll use whole wheat crackers. YUMMY! - 4/7/07

  • This is a wonderful side dish! But I prefer salted crackers. I also use long summer squash, as zucchini isn't available where I live. - 4/6/07
