I just had a chance to check this recipe out even though it has been here a few days. I made my list of what to buy at the store to make it. It sounds delicious. I especially like that it is low fat in so amny ways!

Thanks, I like making recipes that have low fats and low carbs and still taste good.

With fresh zuchinni season upon us this is a great recipe for either a side dish or a main course.
It looks like a lot of steps, but think "lasagne" and it goes really fast.
I calculated the nutritional numbers using FF ricotta and Hunts brand sauce. You can use any form of ricotta and any sauce but you will have to recalculate the numbers.
