"My husband is NOT a picky eater - but my children and I are. We all loved this so much we made it twice and brought it to a family party where it was devoured! Great texture, flavor and taste. I made sure to not only drain the zucchini but blotted it with paper towels - It was PERFECT!"
"This was wonderful tasting! In place of the ground beef I used sausage and in place of the Italian tomato sauce I used homemade marinara. The zucchini will be soggy if you don't drain it properly, but it still tastes good. You can pour off the extra liquid for nice and firm leftovers."
"Awesome will make again and again"
"Very good! I used sausage instead of ground beef.. Also added pizza sauce to tomato sauce because I didn't have Italian tom sauce. I will definitely make again.."
"Very good, but extremely high in fat and cholesterol. So not really a "healthy dish" but very tasty."
