Good job! This is so simple to make and tastes great. I added garlic but followed the rest as written. I served this over penne pasta with a salad and garlic bread. Very enjoyable meal. Thanks for the great idea. Good luck in the contest.

I really wasn't expecting as much flavor as this delivered. Five common pantry ingredients exceeded my expectations and was easy to prepare. I used a chunky salsa with medium spiciness and served with flour tortillas to roll into "make your own" burritoes. Thank you for sharing your recipe & good luck in the contest!

Mmmm, this was very tasty and was just up my street I am low carbing and this is perfect, not just that my DH just loved it and he usually turns his nose up at what I am eating but not this he loved it. I used a salsa that was quite hot we like hot in fact we like very hot and it was very hot and the cumin gives it a nice bit of extra flavour. thank you for posting it was very easy to prepare, and so good to eat, I will definitely make this again. I would like to wish you the very best of luck in the competition, I think it's a winner

WOWZER!! Loved this and so did DH and BIL! They came in clearing wood and smelled this as they came off the tractors. I could not get it on the table fast enough! It was a rainy chilly day here so this was perfect for me to make quick and for the guys to gobble down. I used a mild salsa as that is what I had on hand. Next time I may use a medium salsa for some zip, like when our temps gp below MINUS 30. This is fantastic. I wonder how it will be using frozen zucchini ( I have stored some for winter use) Thank you chef and Good Luck. I bet this would be great over brown rice, just add in a bit more sauce. hmmmmmm Made for Dining on a $ Contest 2011

I decided to make this when I went to you page to see who you were. It was the first recipe listed and I had just bought some zucchini! I love the flavor but it needs a bit more seasoning for me. I added some fresh mushrooms.
The next time I make it, and I will, I think I will add some fresh garlic and more chopped onion!
Thank you for a quick and delicious meal.

I usually reserve the 5* for "gourmet" or something I would pay a pretty penny for in a restaurant. However, when I devour almost the entire recipe while cooking it, it means I was either starving, or this was really tasty, and I ate quite a huge amount of this while it was still cooking!!! I was starving, but this was really tasty also. I did the recipe just as written, but am going to change it next time, and probably add either the corn or maybe even pasta, and just extra salsa. I think I did use 4 garlic cloves because I love garlic.

I didn't have any salsa, so I added salsa ingredients- extra onion, garlic, chopped green chillies, chopped tomatoes and cilantro with some tomato paste. I mixed in a small amount of cooked rotelli pasta at the end, and served as a 1 dish meal. The flavor was very nice, and my guy who doesn't like zucchini had seconds. Thank you for an easy dinner!
