Stuffed Zucchini Rolls
These stuffed zucchini rolls were fantastic! Always want to find some good zucchini recipes, this is definitely the one. So easy to make! Love the juicy, creamy and tasty stuffing, which went perfectly well with chilled zucchini slices. Next time when we have company to come over, definitely will make these rolls again.
