These were excellent! Derf suggested sprinkling cornmeal on the greased baking sheet which I will definately do in the future cause mine stuck like glue. But they were sooo good and they froze and reheated prefectly. I let them cool to room temperature then wrapped each one individually in plastic wrap and froze in a large freezer bag. To reheat, I microwaved them for 3 minutes straight from the freezer. Wonderful For the filling I used some homemade spaghetti sauce that needed to be used up (tomatoes, tomato sauce, ground beef, and lots of seasoning) to which I added the zucchini and cheese.
