We liked this very much. Due to one of the other reviews, I threw in one finely chopped clove of garlic and some chopped onion when I sautéed the zucchini. My DH doesn't like black olives so I just used green ones. I am sure that we will make this one again!

I wanted to let you know that I tried this - but my flavor was very different than what was intended because I used monterey jack cheese (it worked in a weird way). The texture was good, it was easy, and I think it's a good way to get some veggies into my kids. I'll be making this again.

DH and I both came to the consensus that this dish needs onions and/or garlic. I personally did not care for the olives but given that I'm pregnant I'm super-sensitive to some tastes so it could be just me. My toddler ate really well so definite brownie points there. Easy to make and quick.
