**I would double the sauce and mushrooms. This recipe is delici-o-so!!!!!  My husband thinks the sauce should be tripled or quadrupled--it's that yummy!!!!!!!!

I also have lots of zucchini recipes that should be posted, but that's for another day!  A parent of one of my husband's summer school students has a tremendous garden and has been sending tons of squash and zucchini our way.  One squash weighs at least 7 lbs.  No joke!  I plan to make Ratatouille and cheddar zucchini puffs and something else with zucchini, bacon, and cheddar cheese. . .does that make your mouth water?

Gotta run. . .sitting at Panera Bread while waiting for tires to be fixed. . .back tire was absolutely flat this morning. . .not complaining though. . .have you tried the Fugi Apple Salad?  so, so, so, yummy!!!
