Reviews for Makeover Zucchini Supper
"Made the recipe exactly as stated with the exception of putting in sage...neither I nor my husband care for it. I don't know what went wrong but it was so juicy I had to bake it uncovered (after the first 45 minutes covered) an additional 1 - 1.25 hours to firm it up some and brown. Even then it was still juicy. The flavor was good and my husband is quite a picky eater but will help eat the leftovers. It's currently tipped on a slant to get more of the juice out. It was quite an experience. Checked the recipe a couple of times and did exactly as it came off the internet. Go figure!!!!!"
"very tasy. Leftovers taste great cold as well"
"This was very good! but it does not look good!"
"easy and delicious,thanks for the recipe"
"i made this last nite and neither me or my husband thought much of it, it tasted like mush. there was no taste at all."
"Use homemade bread that has no salt added, there is a lite Velveeta that will lower the sodium a little more; and you could just use fresh sliced mushrooms in place of the soup."
"I wasn't too impressed with this casserole."
"This had 2000mg of sodium before the makeover??? WOW"
