Munch Madness: Grilled Zucchini vs. Baked Manicotti

Munch Madness: Grilled Zucchini vs. Baked Manicotti

Zucchini was a little green on the food court, but Manicotti’s moves were cheesy and pasta ball out of bounds. Zucchini nearly got squashed. In the end it was a draw, with both players feeling chewed up.
