"After some tweaking, got to a crowd pleaser . Only 1 cr. cheese, 1.5 cups zucchini, 3 Large cloves garlic, & 3 minced jalepenos were added to the other recipe ingredients which I did not reduce. Best made day before for flavor development."

"I substitute 2 cans Cannelinii beans for the cream cheese. I pureed the beans in a food processor using a bit of the liquid from the veggie mixture and a splash of extra olive oil for richness . This variation made it this a non-dairy, gluten -free, vegan and delicious."

"Fantastic! I love Garlic but if you are serving this to a large group of people 4 cloves may be a better amount."

"I like zuchinni almost any way but this is the best use I've found for it. Oh, my goodness! It is addictive! 8 cloves of garlic is pretty potent. Just right for us but anyone stepping in the room can smell it!"

"I made the and the whole family loved it. I used three variations. I used 10 cloves of garlic. I used a high grade of Greek olive oil, I cut down on the cream cheese and added plain Greek yogurt. The yogurt gave it a little tartness and made it more spreadable. Next time I make it I am going to add some lemon juice and a little fresh chopped thyme to give it more of a Greek identity."

"We apologize for an error in this recipe. It should be 8 cloves of garlic (instead of 18). That may still seem high to some, but this makes 6 cups of spread. You can always start with less garlic if desired.

This error will be corrected soon.

"I love garlic, but I'm going to try 2 (1 per brick of cream cheese) to start with. The only way I could see 18 cloves is if you were roasting it-then it has a very mellow flavor."

"My suggestion would be to just add garlic cloves individually until you like the taste. I want to try this and that's they way I am going to do it."

"18 cloves of garlic would kill any conversation. I wonder if there was a typo and they only meant 1 clove."

"I agree. Until someone addresses the 18 cloves of garlic, I'm not likely to try this recipe. Too bad, too, because I have a big crowd coming over for football this weekend!"
