    PaulaG's Note:

    Great way to use fresh from the garden zucchini. This dish can be served as a side dish or over brown rice for a nice light meatless dish. Adjustments were made to the original recipe which comes from The New American Diet cookbook.

      What a fantastic vege dish!! I made with all the listed ingredients but cut them all into small cubes and ommited the cheese. I cooked the carrot, celery and onion until soft first then added the remaining ingredients until they were done, leaving a slight crunch. My youngest Daughter who going has recently decided that she wants to be a vegetarian had her's served over rice. The rest of the family had it as a side. Reviewed for ZWT3. Thanks for sharing!

      What a great side dish! So simple and good. I chopped all of the ingredients and forgot to add the cheese so we added a little bit at the table. Thanks Paula for a great keeper. Made for ZWT8 - Family Picks.

      Delicious veggie dish! I don't care for onions so left them out and used a little extra pepper instead; also added just a sprinkling of crushed red pepper flakes. Loved the mustard/salsa combo, really tasty. Served as a side this time but next time will double the sauce and serve over pasta. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
