This dish is very rich, but oh so good! You can use lower fat sour cream and margarine in the dish and not affect the taste. You can also add yellow squash for a more colorful dish.

This was a different way to use up some zucchini and have a vegetarian meal. I think it went over well as it made a bunch and there's only a little left! I had to use yogurt for the sour cream and I think it gave it a little more tangy flavor. Will use low-fat sour cream next time. Added some eggplant and yellow squash. Used 1 leek and 1/2 small red onion. I added some garlic powder and think this recipe is good for seasoning however your preferences are. Might try oregano next time and would increase the veggies and decrease the sour cream a little. You don't need to parboil the zucchini for 15 minutes! Only a couple minutes, or better yet, steam them or saute them with the carrots and onions. I boiled them for 5 min. and they were mushy. Thanks!
