"A new favorite! I used garlic oil, added more fresh garlic. I didn't have yogurt so I used sour cream. My husband says "make it again!""

"Very good and easy! To the person who thought it was bland: I substituted sharp cheddar cheese for the low fat and it was excellent! Will definitely make again!"

"This was so easy to make. I tweaked the recipe a little with fresh chives, dill and parsley and added some left over chopped chicken breast to make it a complete meal for our family. No leftovers from this recipe!"

"This dish has been a favorite for several years. in order to reduce the fat, we use Kraft No Fat shredded cheddar cheese. We also sauteed an onion and added it. Topped with dried chives for pretty presentation. This is a yummy meatless alternative! !"

"Very few zucchini recipes out there worth trying, but this is a keeper. Picky family that normally avoids zucchini (which I grow by the truckload) gobbled it right up in this form.. A+ from me!!"

"I was looking for ways to use up my zucchini & decided to give this a try. Glad I did as it was very good. Even my teenage son who insists he doesn't like zucchini polished off a big helping of it! I substituted sour cream because I didn't have any plain yogurt on hand."
