This is an extra special bread in our family because it was one of the key elements in my sister and her fiancé’s dating story. Instead of grating the zucchini, I like to divide it into six long parts and then thinly slice it. My husband loves seeing vegetables in his food so doing it this way makes him think it is healthier for him!
