This loaf has a rugged, textured look that adds to its old-fashioned appeal. The mild Parmesan flavor nicely complements the zucchini, which adds bits of green color to every tender slice. -Christine Wilson, Sellersville, Pennsylvania

"Very good with dinner when's it fresh out of the oven (cooled slightly). I've made it many times and my family enjoys left over bread with honey for breakfast."

"The texture of the bread was nice and the bread had a simple flavor which was pleasant. I was looking for a more parmesan taste, though so I think next time I'll increase the cheese to a 1/4 cup. Overall, a good recipe."
