You'll knock their socks off with this easy-to-prep side dish that's absolutely delicious. My favorite time to make it is when the zucchini is fresh out of the garden. —Sandi Guettler, Bay City, Michigan

"This is a favorite in my family -- like a ratatouille for people who are not fond of eggplant."

"My mother and now I make a similar version of this dish. It makes it a meal instead of a side dish. Brown 1 lbs of ground beef , drain an crumble it up. Take 3/4 lbs of uncooked dry spaghetti noodles and put on bottom of 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle hamburger over noodles and

layer zucchini over. Add 2 cans of the diced tomato with juice over . Add 6 tbls butter
and a 1/2 c water. bake for about 45 minutes. Sprinkle with parm cheese
before serving. Good with bread and butter."

"Really liked this as a side dish. I cut the sodium (because we have to in our house) by only adding 1/4t of seasoned salt and I used Italian seasoned diced tomatoes with no salt added. I did add a little more Italian seasoning with no salt added (oregano, thyme, and garlic)"

"My hubby and I have to watch our salt intake, and he's sensitive to pepper. I used italian seasoning instead of salt and pepper. It turned out awesome."

"This was a delicious dish. I didn't change anything except I cut it in half. Make sure you watch the zucchini... you don't want it getting too done in the first step because it will continue cooking in the second step. I made this as a side to marinated grilled steak. I will definitely make this again."

"So good. I added some cut up chicken breast for a quick main dish for the family and it was delicious. I definitely will make this again with or without the chicken in it."
