Of course pork would not be on the Middle East menu, and I have never seen a meatball kofta mixture featuring zucchini, but this is a spinoff I created to use up summer zucchini. The diameter of pita breads will determine the yield, but generally one recipe (2 pounds of meat) makes ten to twelve 6-inch Kaftas, or six to eight 8-inch. One serving is equal to one half pita bread (or the whole pita sandwich for hungry folks) but I estimated a yield of 12 servings for sake of the nutrient information panel. These baked sandwiches freeze well and are great for a quick microwaved snack or lunch. See pictorial of stuffing and baking these posted on my Kofta (Kofta) Pita Sandwich recipe on this site (click under Useful Links below at left.) Serve with Tzatziki or other yogurt sauce.
