A good way to use the abundant crop of zucchini,that is a good main dish and easy to prepare. I sometime use Italian sausage instead of ground beef--it spices it up nicely. Recipe from the "The Best of Mennonite Fellowship Meals".

Very good, I will be making this again. Now comes the part that I hate to see when people rate recipes. I added fresh chopped green peppers and sliced yellow squash because I had them. I also had a very fresh tomato right out of the garden so I chopped it up and added it to the tomato bisque soup. I usually have to substitute somethings because I don't have the exact ingredients on hand but, this time I had it all. Thank you for sharing, this is a keeper.

This was a really good recipe, one that I will make again. I followed the directions exactly. The next time tho, I will boil the zucchini a little longer as I didn't boil them long enough and a few were still a little crunchy.
