    This is very good. But i cut out some fat and use vegetable broth in place of the butter, equal amounts. Tastes wonderful. Will make again. I also add some fresh mushrooms to the mix.

    It's a great way to use zucchini and other fresh veggies from the garden. Nice side for chicken or steak.

    A keeper! Instead of the basil and oregano I used Italian seasoning, to taste. I cut back on the cheese because DH doesn't like a lot on his veggies. Next time I'm going to try either canola or olive oil in place of the butter.

    The vegetables came out perfect! The mozzarella seemed a bit heavy/thick for this dish, so I might do something different in the future.

    I cooked the vegetables until soft and added more basil and oregano. And we added several ounces of small cubed cheddar. It was perfect!

    This recipe is very flavorful. My favorite way to make it. You can cut down on the butter if you want to lower the fat.

    This is one recipe I seek out every summer to make with our homegrown zucchini! My husband enjoys it and has requested it several times. Very tasty!!

    This is my favorite way to enjoy our fresh garden zucchini. It's good even without the cheese (which made it a dish I could serve to those in our family with dairy allergies.)I mixed in summer squash for a great color combination. Cherry tomatoes work really well in this dish. Thanks for sharing!
