Good Recipe. I modified it a bit by adding tyme garlic salt and white pepper. I did not smash the veggies I kept them chopped and it was tasty. It complimented my chicken stuffed with fresh spinach and gouda cheese. Thanks! Read More

Unfortunately this wasn't edible. I followed the recipe very closely except for the fact that I reduced the amount of onion as 1 cup seemed excessive for this small dish. I served this to seven family members 6 of which like zucchini. Nobody took more than 1 bite and the rest ended up dumped. Luckily it wasn't a very expensive dish to make and I had all of the ingredients on hand. The consistancy was unflattering and the onion (even reduced) was so overpowering my family thought it was an "Onion Casserole". Usually I try each recipe more than once if I think it has potential but for my family this is a no-go. Read More

This is a great summer time dish! I recommend putting more spices than just salt and pepper and maybe a table spoon more horseradish. Other than that I love it! Read More

This my favorite zucchini recipe. I use 2 cups of cracker crumbs and after adding the butter to crumbs I add about 1/3 of crumbs to zucchini mixture. Also add 1 cup cubed American cheese. The horseradish gives this a unique flavor. Don't leave it out. Read More

This was tasty. I did reduce the onion because just looking at the recipe I could tell it would be too much for me. I used butter flavored seasoning a mixture of summer squash a whole egg and had some leftover cheese crackers that I used on top Read More
