"Very good. I read the reviews and decided to bake at 400 degrees for a shorter time. I don't care for zucchini that is too soft. This turned out very good. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the good recipe."

"The squash turns out soft but is not mushy. It is a very simple recipe - great for a quick side dish. I did add some Italian seasoning and basil for a little more taste."

"Great flavor! But they got limp before they got browned. Next time I'll cook at a higher temperature for less time so they're still crisp-tender."

"Wow, absolutely delicious! Next time I make these , I will have a chunky marinara sauce to dip them in. Who knew zucchini could taste so good!"

"Delicious - just make sure you cut the slices thick enough so they don't burn. It only took about half the time to cook, and half were burnt."
