"Absolutely delicious, and amazingly simple to do. I used half of the butter, and completely forgot the basil! Still wonderful. My husband, mom, and kids all agree."

"Full flavor, rich, easy to make. This is a great use for those zucchini that got too big in the garden before you noticed them!"

"This was very good. I think it might be a good to freeze and a good way to save some zuchinni through the winter. I only used a very little bit of butter to saute the onions and I used fat-free half and half, so it can be very healthy."
