"We have plenty of zucchini in our garden and we're always looking for new ways to use it. This is a pretty yummy way! I used Jimmy Dean sausage instead of hamburger. I also doubled the cottage cheese mix and added more cheese because I like my lasagna nice and rich! I also peeled and de-seeded the zucchini."
"Me and my husband loved it!!!!! I did make a few changes, like added spinach and green peppers..."
"Not bad...but a little bland and very watery! Wasn't bad, but I wouldn't make it again."
"Quick and easy! Everyone likes this and it is very tasty as a leftover too. A keeper."
"If you don't like zucchini...you need to try this! It will make you a zucchini lover!"
