This zucchini slice is our late nan’s recipe.  It is something that we make on a regular basis, mainly because everyone eats it, but also because it is great for lunches, it makes a lot and it is fairly cost effective. But also it reminds us of her. You could bulk it up with extra veggies, but we pretty much just stick to what’s on the list.

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!

Enjoy!
