Childhood favourite revisited

I was looking in the fridge for something to cook the other night and I decided it was time to reinvent a childhood favourite, given that we had purchased a lot of cheap zucchini at the greengrocer over the weekend I decided I would make a Zucchini slice, but as Will does not eat pork, I decided to leave out the bacon and add some additional flavours.
