Zucchini Parmesan

You'll knock their socks off with this easy-to-prep side dish that's absolutely delicious. My favorite time to make it is when the zucchini is fresh out of the garden. —Sandi Guettler, Bay City, Michigan

    This is another delicious dish using zucchini. I added a bit of oregano but otherwise followed the recipe.

    Such an easy recipe, since just for 2 I cut recipe in half. Will definitely add to rotation. I like to keep to original recipe when making for the 1st time. After reading reviews I am looking forward to adding other ingredients, like potatoes

    It's good. I added green peppers and onions while a sauteed the zucchini. I also seasoned the zucchini with season- all and black pepper. Next time I will serve it with rice or potatoes.

    I have made this for years except that I sauté bacon and onions before adding the zucchini. When the zukes are nearly done, I add chopped fresh tomatoes. Season with garlic salt, Italian seasoning. Omit the cheese. Delicious and one of our favorites.

    This is a favorite in my family -- like a ratatouille for people who are not fond of eggplant.

    My mother and now I make a similar version of this dish. It makes it a meal instead of a side dish. Brown 1 lbs of ground beef , drain an crumble it up. Take 3/4 lbs of uncooked dry spaghetti noodles and put on bottom of 9 x 13 pan. Sprinkle hamburger over noodles andlayer zucchini over. Add 2 cans of the diced tomato with juice over . Add 6 tbls butterand a 1/2 c water. Bake for about 45 minutes. Sprinkle with parm cheesebefore serving. Good with bread and butter.

    Really liked this as a side dish. I cut the sodium (because we have to in our house) by only adding 1/4t of seasoned salt and I used Italian seasoned diced tomatoes with no salt added. I did add a little more Italian seasoning with no salt added (oregano, thyme, and garlic)
