"This recipe was fantastic! I used tomato sauce instead of ketchup and added a spalsh of green tabasco sauce along with the seasonings and served it with brown jasmine rice. The whole meal was so fresh and filling without being heavy. Will be a dish I make year-round for sure!"

"I love zucchini and was certain I would love this recipe. My husband on the other hand was a bit skeptical. Much to my surprise he loved them and asked me to make them again. They're healthy, easy to make and delicious! What more could you ask for!"
