This was really good. I used havarti cheese and I didn't make the zucchini side so I mixed cajun seasoning into the butter that was brushed on the bread instead because I like spice. They were delicious. I definitely will make these again.

Husband loved the meal. The Cajun zucchinis were good but too spicy for my toddler, and nearly me. I used cooked chicken sausage as that’s what I had. Overall I was very impressed with how quickly everything came together
