    Fantastic, easy recipe! I chose to broil the ciabatta after drizzling it with olive oil, and pan sautee the zucchini after tossing it in the oil/garlic. Balsalmic vinegar really made this one! Bought fresh smoked mozzarella, which added another layer of flavor. Cut away the center of the bread for my mom, who doesn't love eating a ton of bread. Great easy lunch or light dinner. Will definitely make again! :)

    We also added a bit of the balsamic to the bread. Very good!

    Yummy. The zucchini was a nice addition. It gave the sandwich a bit more substance. I basically followed the recipe but I didn't put balsamic vinegar on the zucchini. Instead, I drizzled a balsamic vinegar reduction on the bread. We had the sandwiches with baked chips, tuscan melon, and a crisp pinot grigio. It was a perfect summer dinner for enjoying out on the deck.

    I loved this sandwich. I followed the recipe exactly and the end result was pure bliss. Delicious!! We had corn on the cob as a side. Excellent summer meal on the deck!!

    Good in theory, but kind of bland in practice. I added more balsamic at the end. Still just "ok", for all of the great ingredients going into it. Also added fresh spinach after it was cooked.

    Excellent, easy, and fast. Grilled both the zucchini and the ciabatta bread on our charcoal grill; grilling over natural charcoal imparts a light smokiness which adds to the depth of flavor.

    This is delicious! I didn't use a pan, we grilled everything outside and then I just drizzled some balsamic over the tomatoes while constructing the sandwich. We added grilled portabella mushrooms which made it a little heartier, almost like a burger. Excellent light summer dinner!

    Delicious summer dish. The blend of flavors is lovely. Not too complicated to make.

    Yum. The ciabatta bread was perfect for this sandwich. I forgot to add the balsamic but it was still very good. I added a little crushed italian seasoning to the olive oil and that added to the flavor.

    Loved this one. Simple to make but has big flavors. Followed the directions pretty much to the letter.

    Really good sandwich. Surprised that family enjoyed this vegetarian sandwich, but it was a hit with everyone. Did use a good balsamic (aged). Flavors were excellent.

    was good, but has potential to be more flavorful. I think I may use focaccia bread next time as some one else suggested and maybe add more of the filling.

    We loved these! Fairly small servings, but surprisingly satisfying. Nine pts of yum!

    These sandwiches came together quickly and won over the crowd. The zucchini was so flavorful with the garlic and oil. I wouldn't make any changes to the recipe! (served with chips and fresh veggies for lunch)

    This sandwich was great! I used wheat ciabatta rolls instead of white though.

    Adored these sandwiches! Great weekend to try out since the farmer's market is back for the summer and I had some great zucchini, yellow tomatoes and beautiful basil. A few changes: 1) added 1/2 of a grilled boneless, skinless chicken breast seasoned with italian seasoning and sliced to each sandwich; 2) brushed both sides of our rolls (not ciabatta, just what looked good fresh at the store) with olive oil and grilled till toasted; then while still warm, rub the cut side of a fresh garlic clove over each bun half vigorously (then you don't have to lose the garlic flavor with the minced on the zucchini). Assembled all ingredients as directed and enjoyed - great flavors, really filling and a wonderful summertime recipe. Will absolutely make these again & again; enjoy!

    OMG! Soooo good!! We just finished eating, and if I wasn't so full, I'd eat another one!! We used ciabatta rolls, and they might have been a tad too crunchy. Oh my, the zucchini came out delicious. I also added yellow squash, too. I will definitely make squash just like this again. It was scrumptious!! I did as a previous reviewer did and toasted the rolls, then scraped the edges with a garlic clove. I served with corn and cole slaw. It was soooo good!! We're definitely making these again!!
