I made this tonight for dinner and it was very good. I used two zucchini added 3 minced cloves of garlic only two tomatoes used 1/4 tsp. basil and 1/4 tsp. oregano for the Italian seasoning and also added about 1/2 tsp. salt. I mixed the seasonings in with all the vegetables instead of just on top. I think it tasted better incorporating the seasoning throughout the dish. I also sprinkled a tad bit of Parmesan along with the mozzarella and also used only about half the amount of cheese. 8 oz seemed a little much... maybe if you used a larger casserole dish you would use more cheese. Anyway it was really a wonderful side dish and my sister who has hated zucchini forever said it was actually very good and that she meant it. I think that says a lot! Everyone enjoyed this dish and it was a great combination of vegetables. Yummy!

Very disappointing. Soggy and the cheese end up in clumps when it cools. It was so bland even after adding salt and pepper as per other reviews. I will not make this again.

I love this dish but I also had a problem with sogginess. I solved it by using a carton of chopped tomatos & simply drained them. YUM!

I made this for dinner tonight and I found that the tomatoes were really just far too wet possibly because of the ones I used and the green peppers didn't seem to get cooked enough. I think the next time I try this I'll only use the zucchini onions and cheese as well as putting some sliced mushrooms in with the zucchini and onion when it's in the skillit. MMMM now that sounds good.

We loved this! I had an abundance of zucchini and peppers from my garden but no tomatoes. I used a 15 oz cn aof petite diced tomatoes which I drained. I have fresh herbs growing right outside my kitchen so I used parsley thyme and oregano in place of Italian seasoning. This took about 45 minutes to be done (cheese bubbly and slightly browned.) My husband loved this and had three helpings. This will definitely be made again!

I gave this recipe 5 stars for flavor. I did make some changes...used cheddar because I didn't have mozzarella and lined the bottom of the casserole dish with bread crumbs...The crumbs absorbed any extra liquid and they tasted good as well. I stirred them into the casserole before serving it with freshly grated parmesan cheese on the side which I believe enhanced its flavor.

I made this as a side dish...wow! Was I surprised! I too used 2 zucchinis and half the tomtatoes. In addition I "layered" the veggies starting w/ the zucchini then onions green peppers and tomatoes - sprinkling a little italian seasoning on each layer. I didn't think something so simple would turn out so good but we all enjoyed this and I'll be sure to make again when the garden is full of these goodies!! Thanks Juzella!

Had a great first attempt. Loved the cheese and Italian seasonings. Wish I had read the reviews first as I did experience the wateriness. I will drain the tomatoes next time. Maybe add some more peppers. Great summer meal. My wife loved it!

Its a great way to eat your veggies. Like the others I thought the dish was a little wet in the bottom. I used some parmesan cheese with the mozarella cooked the peppers with the zucchini and tossed the seasoning with all the ingredients. I used two medium zucchini one large tomato and 1/3 of an onion.
