Reviews forZucchini Cheddar Saute
"What an outstanding recipe! I made a small batch for the two of us and wished I would've made more. We really enjoyed it and I'll definitely be making this tasty dish again!"
"I didn't have zucchini available! I used cooked spinach which had been left over! I used 3 Tbsp. canola oil in place of the butter. I also omitted the cheese! I used 1 to 1-1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning, crushed. There was 1/2 to 1 medium tomato available, so I just diced it and added it to the vegetable mixture! I also omitted the olives. The next time there is zucchini available, I can prepare it with the actual zucchini. I found this to be an interesting dish! Thank you for sharing this recipe with Taste of Home! delowenstein"
"This is a tasty side dish, however next time I will add some corn or peas to the mix. I didn't have fresh tomatoes so tried canned diced tomatoes. I think the fresh would be a good deal better. When the zucchini begins to ripen this summer, this will be a good go to recipe ."
"Very good!I forgot the olives but it was good without it."
