Reviews forItalian Zucchini Casserole
"I made this recipe using zucchini and yellow squash, 1 tsp Italian seasoning and whole canned tomatoes broken up with my hands. I used Stove Top turkey stuffing, unprepared. This was excellent! The family loved it. Will definitely make again."
"wonderful taste....used recipe as stated. Family took seconds and enjoyed the flavor. Will be adding this to my side dishes."
"I was wondering what kind of stuffing mix everyone used? Do you prepare it first?"
"Would like to try this but can't seem to print the recipe. How do we do that?"
"We love zucchini and the Italian favor was a nice addition to our dinner Thanks for sharing!"
"My daughter's favorite zucchini casserole. It tastes even better with fresh herbs & produce!"
"This was an awesome recipe. But instead of putting sliced zucchini I used grated zucchini and it was great!"
"My daughter said this recipe got rave reviews when she served it to guests."
"This was a nice, easy, delicious way to use up some extra zucchini. I love the Italian flavors and may even try omitting the stuffing mix next time (I feel like it got too soggy)."
