"Great winter night recipe! Comfort food! And of course in the summer when the zucchini is in I'll make again. My husband misses beef and suggested it with tenderloin tips, anybody try this?"

"Made this tonight for supper and it was a big hit and will go into our regular line up of favorites. We both had seconds and were miserably full but so happy. I did change it up a bit to suit our tastes. I sliced my carrot rather then shred it and also added a stalk of celery also sliced. I boiled my carrot and celery slices until almost done and drained before adding to the rest of the ingredients. I also saut?ed my onion with about 3 TBS. of diced bell pepper in a small skillet with 1/4 cup of the listed butter. I quartered then sliced my zucchini and also saut?ed it with the onion and pepper until all were tender then added them as well as the other vegetables to the other ingredients. I used leftover chicken that I had boiled to make chicken 'n' dumplings a couple of nights ago with and hadn't used all the chicken. I deboned and shredded my chicken before adding. I also added salt, pepper and chicken seasoning to the whole mixture before putting in my casserole dish to bake. Topped with the remaining 1/2 cup of dressing mix then I baked it in a 350 degree pre-heated oven for the whole 45 minutes. The stuffing is perfect in this recipe and we even liked the crunch of the few used on top of this casserole. It is just delicious. Thanks so much for submitting this recipe for the rest of us to get to enjoy even though I did change it up some it's still basically the same. I'd give it 10 stars if I could."

"When I made this I was feeling a tad lazy so I changed up the assembly process to make it easier and use less dishes. I greased my casserole dish then threw in the zucchini and chicken. Then I poured the soup/sour cream mixture over top. Finally I sprinkled the stuffing mix on the top and put it in the oven. The meal was delicious! My husband usually isn't a zucchini fan but he really liked this!"

"I used 4 cups of chicken, 4 cups of zucchini, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 tsp poultry seasoning to the main ingredients. Then added 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the topping. So I guess I recreated the recipe! A fabulous make again!"
