"This was a relatively quick, healthy dish that my family called "delicious." Also, the zucchini I had was leftover and already cooked, so the saut?ing took even less time. I didn't have parmesan on hand, so I used Polish morski cheese (somewhat like swiss) instead--and it worked great!"

"Always looking for more ways to use zucchini. I used oregano and basil instead of thyme. This was quick and delicious."
