Very yummy, but wished I had thought to squeeze moisture from the zucchini and other comment is that it needed to cook longer- Read More

A delightful side or, in larger portions, main dish. I never remember to pick up jalapenos, so I season to taste with pepper flakes or ground red pepper -- it works just fine. I've made this two different ways: the firs time, I julienned the zucchini by hand. The second time, I shredded it with a grater. Texturally, I preferred the julienned version, but both were very, very good. Read More

Loved this, and what's better, the kids loved it, too. Of course I altered the recipe, so here's what worked for me: I doubled the veggies, and added milk to the mix to help it stretch to cover all those veggies. I didn't measure, but I probably added 1/4 C milk. I used both zucchini and yellow squash. I chopped the zucchini, squash, and onion coarsely, as if I were doing a stir fry. It turned out a bit like a quiche, only with more veggie than quiche, if that makes sense. This one is a keeper for me. I'll definitely make it again. Read More

We love this! The mixture seemed a little too moist, so I added extra Bisquick. (I have never made it without adding extra, so I don't have anything to compare it to.) I also served it with sour cream and that was a great touch! Read More

Very good. Texture was a little odd to me...almost like a souffle, so the second time i made it i cut the zucchini into small slices and i liked it much better than with shredded zucchini. Read More

I was not sure I wanted to try this but thought 'what to heck, lets go with it'. I watched my hubby as the fork went to his mouth with the first bite of the zucchini and I was surprized. I was so sure that he would not like it, but his words were "this is really good, honey. Add this one to your list as a keeper". What a relief, whew! It's really hard trying to find recipes that charm my hubby. I'm personally not a pepper lover, but the hubby is and that is why I decided to use this recipe. I did however follow other reviewers on slicing the squash rather than shredding it and salted it to sweat it out a little and it turned out fine. I gave it a 4 as it was my hubbies choice and he loved it. Read More
