A gooey, cheesy side dish that I invented while trying to use up my plentiful zucchini crop. Comfort food with an interesting texture and mild flavors. Great for the little ones!

I sautéed the zucchini first so it wouldn't be watery. For added flavor I used box rice with a cheddar flavor and I skipped the egg and only added a half cup of milk to make it more thick like a casserole. I thought it was great the way it turned out with my added tweeks. I read the other ratings that's why I tried it this way. Read More

This recipe was good enough but I would jazz it up a bit if i make it again. We are trying to reduce our meat intake and this recipe came up with my search for rice and zuchinni. I like some of the suggestions. Thanks. Read More

Really good. Took longer to bake about 45 minutes. It would be good with onions and peppers. Read More

Not bad-- actually it turned out better than I thought it would. Changes: sauteed the chopped zucchini (and yellow squash) in a bit of butter with salt pepper and drained; added a bit of spring onion that needed using; used Zatarain's yellow rice; used sharp cheddar; added red pepper flakes; baked for 45 min and let rest for 20 min or so. I think I'll try again with a different type of cheese. Read More

This was good! I do think it could use some more seasonings...salt pepper and garlic powder maybe. Also I had to bake mine longer than stated about 1 hour. This did make a nice side and is a great use of zucchini. I would make this again with added seasonings. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This was a hit at Thanksgiving today! I would have given it 5 stars except like a previous poster wrote I think it needs additional spices to bring out the flavor. I added garlic powder garlic salt and black pepper. It was a mild flavor but a good one! Read More
