Story Behind this Recipe

I usually use zucchini just for Ratatouille, and I bought a lot since it was cheap, but I didn't have all the ingredients. I had pork in the fridge, so I rolled the zucchini in it with a Japanese taste. It was really popular.
Even my mom, who doesn't like zucchini couldn't stop eating it!
