- Spoon a small portion of the filling onto the center where the zucchini slices cross each other.
- Fold the ends of the zucchini slices over the filling glob one side at a time so that it creates a little enclosed parcel.
- Ladle a couple spoonfuls of sauce into the bottom of a 9″ x 13″ baking dish.

Do you think I could make a big batch and freeze these? Do you have any advice re, defrosting/ cooking from frozen?
I love your recipes, thanks so much.
Recipes with zucchini don’t usually freeze well because of its water content. Once defrosted, it tends to be very watery and mushy
