"I make this often and the family enjoys it. I do feel it's missing a little something. Maybe I'll try the hot sausage as one reader suggested."

"Made this in the Fall when we had lots of summer squash. So easy & my whole family loved it. I used the brick Parmesan cheese that I shredded myself. It tastes so much fresher. A 5 star review from me."

"I make this recipe all the time and my family absolutely loves it. I often use hot sausage instead of hamburger because we like spicy foods. I also add fresh mushrooms. The best part is that it only requires washing one dish!"
