"This dish is on the top of my list for the healthiest and tastiest plates. It gives you the right mix of fresh flavors, from the baked zucchini and tomatoes, to the tasty cheese, let alone the herbs. I didn't add any herbs in the recipe but feel free to add any Mediterranean herb as per your favorite taste: thyme, cilantro, dill, marjoram, mint, oregano, rosemary, saffron, or sage."
