This made an okay weeknight dinner served with green beans and a rice pilaf. I think zucchini lovers would really like it.

I used 1 lb. of hamburger with the 2 TBSP. of Soy Sauce and everyone agreed it still was a bit over powering. I suggest you add and taste it little by little. I also steamed the zucchini aladente which worked out well when I put it in the oven to warm up. Otherwise good idea.
