      I almost posted this recipe, saved from a 2001 Quick Cooking magazine. Kept looking at the picture - and putting off making it, until we just had the last of the garden zuccini and the first of the tomatoes !! I think the secret is NOT to saute the zucchini too long -- enjoy a little crunch. Also used part of a white onion, fresh parsley and basil from the "tub", now a family favorite. UPDATE__ did not realize I had reviewed this last year - fixed again with fresh herbs, and onions, but had to use canned petite diced tomatoes, since our garden plants are not yet ripe . STILL a winner - lost the Velveeta I had purchased for this recipe, so used 2 cups of cheddar. It is SO difficult to find ways to use the garden zucchinis which really put originality to the test. This is GOOD, EASY, and relatively healthy. Thanks for posting, Kitten !

      This is a delicious recipe. Doubled the recipe for a family gathering with no problem. Cooked an extra 10 minutes. Had several requests for the recipe. Thanks, Kittencal!

      What a wonderful way to use garden fresh zucchini and those wonderful tomatoes. The recipe is moist and full of flavor. I was able to omit 2T of butter by not adding it to the squash before baking. The cheese in the dish was plenty creamy without it. We really enjoyed this dish. Thanks Kittencal for posting this wonderful "keeper". Destined to be on my table again! :-)
