Yunmmy!!!! Made this to go along with Mama's Beef-A-Roni#70781 and what an easy and tasty dish. I did saute some garlic in the oil before addeing the zucchini but otherwise I followed the instructions. Definately a keeper and another tasty way to fix zucchini. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
