The herbs in this dish really complement a Thanksgiving turkey. The recipe can easily be doubled to serve a larger group. —Betty Korte, Collinsville, Illinois

"I made this delicious recipe for the ingredient challenge in Cook's Corner. I thought the herbs used in the recipe were quite unique, and we really enjoyed the taste. I prefer a firmer textured cooked zucchini, so I seed it before cooking. I also used several types of summer squash 9zucchini, crookneck, kuza)...the color combination was very eye appealing. This recipe was very easy to make, and I have added it to my keeper file."
