      What a delicious way to enjoy a zucchini from the garden. I almost never use nutmeg but I left it in this recipe and I was glad I did. The saute time with the onions and garlic added a lot of depth. We will enjoy this again.

      Oh my goodness this is good! We had company over and everyone went for seconds on this one! We just loved it! I used half yellow squash & half zucchini since I had a ton of both from our garden. I also used half milk & half 1/2 & 1/2. I upped the flour to 3 Tbsp & mixed that into the milk before pouring over the zucchini. The textures and flavors are wonderful and it's easy to put together. I even had to give over the recipe to the guests before they would leave! Thank you for a wonderful dish :)

      I was a little unsure of making this dish and it’s not the prettiest dish I’ve ever made but WOW- I was so pleasantly surprised when I tasted this. I used whole wheat Italian bread crumbs, half 1 percent milk and half fat free milk and still had a nice creamy texture. I am always on the look out for recipes to use for the overflowing garden bounty of cucuzza and I think this will be perfect.
