Love this recipe !! I use yellow, green, and mexican squash in this. Love it with a wild rice mix also, if you want more spice use hot chilis & papper jack cheese. The left overs re-heat wonderful.

I like this dish a lot. Any thing with green chillis in it is for me.

My husband and I really enjoyed this casserole. I'll definitely be making it again and will be sharing the recipe with my zucchini-loving friends!

Made this last night for supper and hubby really loved it. I liked the texture better before I put it in the oven to bake- the sour cream was all sucked up by the rice by the time it came out and the creamy texture wasn't there. However, I have to say we both liked it and hubby has already said, "I hope you'll make this again cause I really liked it."

Very good, but a little bland. I might add some more spice to it next time.

I made this recipe with yellow squash rather than zucchini. I also omitted the chilis and used a slightly spicy Jambalaya Rice Mix for the rice. I used plain cheddar cheese as well. I also used ground turkey. This dish seems very versitile as I substituted a lot of the ingrdients to fit my pantry.

Does anyone know if the zucchini could be substituted with yellow squash?
