"I made this for a luncheon and I added mushrooms to it. I served the cheese separate and let people add what they wanted. It was a big hit and I will definitely make it again."

"I have made this recipe over a handful of times since I came across it in the Taste Of Home Farmers Market edition. It is fast, and delicious and fairly healthy! The only thing I have changed about this recipe is that I use a zucchini and a yellow summer squash instead of 2 zucchini. Perfect!"
