Recipe by Melissa Spangler

This is a favorite side dish that I like to serve with grilled chicken or pork chops. You can also add a can of niblet corn to this.

This recipe is definitely a keeper. I love zucchini, and will add this to my zucchini recipe file. I used mexican flavored canned tomatoes, since I didn't have the Rotel, and I served it with a little bit of cheddar cheese on top...delicious. Thanks for sharing this one!
