I'm not a great cook, but I'm pretty sure I folowed the recipe exactly. The squares were not well received, and were a little greasy.

Use 1/4 cup of oil - saute the onions and garlic for 2 or 3 minutes and add the zucchine and saute for 3 or 4 minutes. Roast the sesame seeds in a dry pan. It'll be 4 stars!
