Reviews for Ham & Zucchini Italiano
"My mother-in-law introduced this meal to us and we loved it! To make it a bit more filling we added rotini noodles into the dish. We also use yellow squash with the zucchini because they work so together (and our garden runneth over!) In the end, we always have enough to make a 9x13 dish instead. Delish!!"
"It's a smiple dish you can dress up with other things like mushrooms. It was great!"
"Have made it many times and enjoy itwith crusty bread for a light fall meal!"
"This has a light feel to it for dinner, but tastes good. Definitely a summer dish!"
"For some reason, mine came out tasting like a barnyard. That was the exact smell. I had to rate it a two star because I am not sure if it was the recipe or just the age of the cheese I used or the my own frozen zucchini. It does have an interesting mix of ingredients, but mine was just yuk."
