"This was an awesome recipe. But instead of putting sliced zucchini I used grated zucchini and it was great!"

"This was a nice, easy, delicious way to use up some extra zucchini. I love the Italian flavors and may even try omitting the stuffing mix next time (I feel like it got too soggy)."

"I thought this was a good side dish. I did not have any shredded mozzarella so I used asiago instead. I think next time I might use crushed tomatoes instead."

"This is our "go-to" zucchini recipe when the garden is overloaded with zukes , and sometimes in the winter when we need to remember the tastes of summer. When tomatoes are plentiful, we use fresh rather than canned. Thanks very much!"

"This is a great casserole. I made it for my Mom this weekend & she went back for 3 helpings. She said she was so full she couldn't even touch the chicken I made to accompany it!! The only small change I made to the recipe was I used 2 cloves of minced garlic rather than one. I also used Italian diced tomatoes, a Romano/Parmesan blend and Italian Blend Shredded cheese. Turned out beautifully. Thank you so much to Kimberly for posting this recipe!! I'll be making it again for our Italian Themed Christmas dinner this year!!"
