"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."

"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)."
