Wow! I knew this would be tasty, but it was really a big hit here! This will definitely go into our rotation. I used bulk mild Italian sausage in it and Seeds of Change ready to serve brown rice. The zucchini I had was quite large so I only used one in it. Thank you for a delicious dinner!

Little bland. Will spice it up a bit next time. Easy to fix.

This worked even with broccoli substitute. It was quick and easy to make and used up some ground sausage I had left over from Thanksgiving. I think you could add any vegetable and this would work. I used two packages of a quinoa and brown rice heat and serve in this recipe. I tossed it in and this made a quick and easy dinner before work.

We really liked this but made some changes based on ingredients on hand. I used garlic powder (next time 1 t), Jimmy Dean sausage, & powdered mustard (next time 2 t). I omitted the rice to make it more low carb. Next time will add some Worcestershire and fresh basil. This is sooooo easy and quick. It will definitely go into the week night roster!

This was good! We weren't Gaga over it, and it won't be added into a regular rotation, but it is absolutely good in a pinch when we want something different,and super easy to make it is tasty, just not worth 4 stars.Based on some of the bland reviews, I separated the garlic salt into a teaspoon or so of kosher salt and way more garlic powder that was called for (as garlic salt). I also added some chopped fresh basil.

Your recipe showed up in my email just in time - I had zucchini, onion, diced tomatoes with chiles, quinoa, and leftover beer brats and wondered what to do with them. I followed this recipe with my ingredients and it turned out just delicious! Definitely a Repeater! Thanks a lot!

My family loved this recipe! It's perfect for working moms that need to get dinner on the table fast! I used two cans of petite diced tomatoes, 2.5 c. of instant brown rice, I added 1 c of water (there didn't seem to be enough liquid to get the rice cooked), a few shakes of Worcestershire and some Italian seasoning. A huge hit! One pan, fast, easy and delicious!!

I love zuchini, so I was really excited to try this recipe. I thought it was just okay. However, my zuchini hating family loved this recipe. They all went back for seconds and told me I must make it again. There were no left overs and they fought over the last serving! I shredded the zuchini in an attempt to mask the zuchini so my family would try it (totally worked) and I used diced tomatoes instead of stewed. Otherwise I made as directed and I guess I will be making again.

My review is certainly the odd man out. I made the recipe as written, and we thought it was very bland. When I was adding the one teaspoon of mustard, I wondered to myself how so very little would flavor the amount of ingredients. Answer--it didn't. I eventually added extra garlic salt, but even that didn't help much.
