    Hi, this looks wonderful, but have a few questions…since zucchini’s come in so many different sizes, approx. how many cups for this recipe ?
    Also cup wise, how much is 300 g. cheese ?
    And oven temp 180 C , can you please tell me what temperature that would be ? Our ovens are degrees….like 350 degrees….
    What is teleme cheese ? I have never seen this in the USA…. just curious…..

    I think it says this recipe is in Romana right ?

    Thanks for your help…..

      Thank you, I’m glad you like it! The recipe is in both English and Romanian. The main language is English.
      1. 3-4 big zucchinis are probably equal to 7-8 cups of grated zucchini
      2. 300g cheese is equal to one and a half cup of grated cheese
      3. 180 Celsius is equal to 350 Farenheit
      4. Teleme can be found in US too, read more here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teleme_cheese

      Hope this helps :)
