MOM!MOM! notes: To make
matchstick zucchini, I love my
Pinzon Stainless-Steel Mandoline [Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging]
should really be Parmigiano Reggiano, from Italy
and never the green stuff in
can. Instead of Brie, you can use any
white rind cheese, like Camembert.
rind cuts off much easier

I love this recipe.
