Reviews for Zucchini Parmesan
"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 andlayer zucchini over. Add 2 cans of the diced tomato with juice over . Add 6 tbls butterand a 1/2 c water. bake for about 45 minutes. Sprinkle with parm cheesebefore 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."
"It was good. I would rather have fried zucchini."
"Great side dish!"
"I thought it was great."
"Delicious! I served this as a side with the Garlic Ranch chicken in the same issue."
"Delicious! Nothing more needs to be said :-) I've made this multiple times following the recipes and everyone enjoys."

"Great recipe!!! Very simple my daughter helped with it she loved it and is a very picky vegetarian.I had no fresh garlic used garlic salt I layered this dish kinda like a lasagna."

"This was really easy and good. Definitely a keeper."
"Very tasty, used up some ripe tomatoes from our garden instead of canned tomatoes for extra freshness."

"I add rice and sausage, taken out of the casing and browned. Also great without adding anything"
"A great way to use zucchini!! I loved it and will make it again"
"I have made this a couple of time and it is good. either as directed or by adding sausage and cheese to make it a full meal to go with a salad.What I can't understand is how someone could say, "I made this last night for the first time and served it to company" I would never fix something for the first time to serve company, unless they just happened to drop in unexpectedly and ate with me.I would want to know what the meal tasted like before I served it to company. Just my two cents. Nicki"
"I couldn't find seasoned canned tomatoes so added my own Italian spices to canned tomatoes. Also added a little xxx sharp cheddar to pan right before serving for an extra cheesey flavor. We loved it, will be making it again."
"I knew this wouldn't go over well as a side dish, so I tweaked it a bit and turned it into a meal. I added 1/4 lb of crumbled, cooked italian sausage, and I sautee'd the zucchini alongside red bell pepper and white onion. I served over angel hair pasta, topped with the parm cheese and fresh basil from my garden. The husband liked it, and so did I!"
"A definite favorite, Everyone that eats it Loves it and wants the recipe. I cube the Zucchini for a different look & eliminate the seeds."
"I have made this on many occasions this season for different crowds and it has been a fan favorite!"

"I made this last night for the first time, and served it to company. We all loved it; I'll be making it often."
"We didn't have the can of tomatoes but had a ton of fresh tomatoes from the garden so we threw those in along with some italian spices and it was delicious! We'll definitely be making this one again with all our harvest!"
"We love zuchinni and we love tomatoes. This just didn't work for us."
"This was easy and delicious. The best part is my husband said, "Well, we never need to eat zucchini any other way ever again.""
"I made this exactly like the recipe indicated, and it was great! My husband and I are currently in the phase I of the South Beach diet and this was a welcome change as a side to grilled tilapia. I will defintately make it again!!"
"First Zucchini of the Season... This recipe was very good. I served as a side dish with spaghetti."
"very tasty and easy to make. A keeper"
"We eat this a lot. Both my husband and I enjoy it."
"Just tried this ....I now have a new favorite zucchini recipie. Thank you!"
"Delicious!!!!!!!!!! Very easy to make."
"Great veggie side dish. I like to cook it until the cheese and tomatoes are slightly charred, gives it a sweet, smokey flavor"
"This is a great dish! I added some basil from our garden and tossed it with some pasta. Even my meat-eater husband loved it!"
"I sliced the zucchini into thinner slices-more like you would for fried potatoes. It turned out EXCELLENT. Made according to directions, it makes zucchini taste like a really good homemade spaghetti sauce. My four year old ate this, and asked for MORE!"
"I add fresh tomato, mushroom & onions. I then, steam all together, when done, I sprinkle with parm cheese."
"I add Italian seasoning to this and it tastes like pizza. Kids love it."

"This is my favorite zucchini dish. I like to cook it a lot longer, until it starts to blacken and the tomatoes and cheese becomes a little sweeter."
"I saute the zucchini in lots of garlic and EVOO and toss with linguini, adding parmesan of course. Mangia!!"
"I MAKE A DISH SIMILAR BUT I USE ROTEL TOMATOES, AND ITALIAN CHEESE BLEND AND OMIT THE GARLIC, AND I ADD GARLIC PEPPER SALT IT'S GOOD STUFF AND SO easy! ANOTHER IDEA I DO, WHEN TOMATOES ARE PLENTIFUL JUST USE THEM IN PLACE OF THE CANNED ONES."
"I love sauteed zucchini! I add fresh baby spinach as well to change up the flavors sometimes."
"Tasty! This is very similar to the way I usually make zucchini -the addition of seasoned salt and parmesan was a nice touch. Be careful with the seasoning salt though - I only used about 1/2 teaspoon."
