Reviews for Zucchini Rice Pilaf
"great side dish"
"It was as easy as it said, and my family loved it! A great replacement for Rice-a-Roni as I know what every ingredient is that I'm eating. I lowered the sodium by using reduced sodium chicken granules and used half the butter and used olive oil instead."
"We thought this was okay. It could have used more veggies and needed a little salt. I did use "chicken base" (paste) rather than granules...maybe the base is less salty."
"I generally make Sunday dinner early afternoon. By time 8PM came 'round, wanted something healthy. Didn't take long to find this recipe. It was hit the spot delicious!!Thank you sharing recipe.Sincerely,"
