"Mixed reviews in our home. I liked this dish, though it needed salt. My husband hated it. He didn't care for the texture of the tomatoes, and thought the flavors did not work well together."

"This was wonderful...... I had only one zucchini so I used a yellow squash for the 2nd zucchini. And I always add ground pepper....... definitely a two-helping side..... or a main course with a salad!"
