      Easy dish, big flavor, makes a lot. We added fresh garlic while browning the meat. We don't eat beef or pork so we used turkey Italian sausage and ground turkey. Otherwise we followed the recipe exactly. Next time I will add the zucchini earlier or slice it thinner but the flavor is terrific and it's an easy dish to put together. Served it with bowtie pasta.

      I made this for dinner using 1 lb. ground beef instead of using the sausage. We didn't really like it like that which is why I am rating it without stars. It was a bit bland, which certainly wouldn't be a problem with hot Italian sausage. I used quite a bit more than a dash of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. It only served 5 of us as a one-dish main. Maybe this would be better on a buffet line or as a meaty side vegetable.

      delicious! I added in 6 minced garlic cloves while browning the beef and omitted the garlic powder and also 2 teaspoons crushed chili flakes, used seasoned salt, I did some amount adjustments also, I made this early in the day yesterday and forgot to rate it, sent it home with my DS for him to enjoy, thanks for sharing TX!
