I began serving a version of this dish as a side with grilled salmon. I added sausage and rice-or noodles-to make a complete meal-in-one. -Debby Abel of Flat Rock, North Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 17, 2014

You know it is a good recipe when your 13 year old says "I like zucchini." For someone who doesn't ordinarily like zucchini, he liked this dish. It was quick and easy. Only variation was that we added red pepper flakes to kick up the spice level. This was a tasty dish that was perfect for a hot summer night.

A good recipe, just nothing groundbreaking about it. Very fast to make, so good when you need a quick dinner.

Delicious! I used ground hot Italian sausage and threw in some yellow squash and some chopped red peppers too. Served over brown rice.

I use hot Italian Turkey Sausage, Italian diced tomatoes, extra garlic, and add some Italian seasoning to make the skillet more intensely flavored. Delicious.

Excellent! I used hot turkey sausage and added the extra link. Served over Orzo as another reviewer suggested. I decreased the serving size to 1 cup. Very yummy!
