Great way to use up massive amounts of zucchini from my garden and relatively healthy. I used a fairly small amount of Parmesan and mixed in the sauce and then added some to the breadcrumb topping. Didn't cook zucchini as long as suggested snoot mushy."

These were surprisingly good being that they were in the oven. Always thought I would have to grill them to make a good rib. I made some additions to the spice rub: chipotle powder, ground mustard, onion powder, garlic powder. I cooked at 300 for about 3 hours and came out moist, but not fatty.

I made some modifications to alter the dessert into a lighter version. I used sugar free fat free chocolate pudding. For the peanut mixture, I omitted the whipcream and added milk as a substitute. The mixture still came out creamy but was a bit salty from the peanut butter. Perhaps if I used the whipped cream, it would have cut down on the salt f...
