"Delish! Omitted the onions only because my family doesn't like onions unless they're grilled or sauteed; Added baby carrots and thin-sliced yellow squash to add more color and flavor; Dashed some Italian seasoning blend throughout the layers of veggies; topped with a handful of garlic-cheese croutons, then topped with the shredded cheese. Tender, flavorful with a touch of crunch :-)"

"Didn't give it 5 stars because the zucchini was dried than I liked. I added 1/2 cup of sliced cherry tomatoes and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. It was fabulous. Quick and easy too."

"Deserved 5-stars, but needed a little something... I modified this recipe and had amazing results: coated cooking dish with olive oil, 1/4 cup parm and bread crumbs, added some cherry tomatoes. IT WAS AMAZING!"

"I liked it I used Wisconsin White Cheddar instead and added a little salt because it was a tad bland."

"My husband and I both enjoyed this recipe. I used shredded, reduced fat 4 cheese Italian; added 1/2 tsp. oregano and cooked it for 40 mins., covered (due to the high altitude). It turned out great!"

"I made this with fresh basil. Next time I will play around with fresh flat leaf parsley and added seasonings such as Dash or something like that, and garlic. I feel it needs some more flavor too. But it's an excellent concept to bake fresh vegetables in a simple dish like Europeans often do. This would be good with other vegetables such as summer squash, eggplant, fresh corn, and/or tomato."

"This was not bad. Not enough flavor. I used mexican mix cheese. Not sure if that was why there was not much flavor. I thought it would have had more"
