"Love it! This has become a family favorite that is requested when the zucchini start popping. A can of Italian tomatoes works great whenever the fresh ones aren't quite ready. I also add a bit of crushed red pepper and serve it over spaghetti noodles. Yummy! Even the kids like it!"
"A very nice side dish--it's very attractive and tastes good. I thought it was a little bland, but also think that subtleness makes it appealing as a side dish accompanying a more flamboyant entree. I used caution adding the basil--not all of us like that much. I put in as much as I thought the crowd here would enjoy."
"This was a "fresh and clean" tasting dish and was very enjoyable. I only had one medium red tomato (from the store, yuck!)so I took about 12 yellow cherry tomatoes from the garden to make up the difference. Sadly.. I was also out of parmesan so I made it without cheese. It was still very, very good and refreshing. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe Fluffy! (hehe love the name)"
"I like this so much, I occasionally use it as a meal. The only changes I make are to increase the amount of tomato and to substitute water and a boullion cube for the stock. Thanks for a great recipe, Fluffy! "
"I didn't use tomatoes but otherwise followed the recipe. This is a nice, quick way to cook zucchini. Loved the addition of parmesan."
"I have been making this for years... I also like to add some bell pepper. "
"The food critics in my house ate it all up and said they liked it. "
"Delicious. I've been looking for a good zucchini recipe, now I have one."
"this is probably my most used recipe at home! it goes great with absolutely any meat you can think of, and it makes a wonderful lunch alone. the tomato and basil go perfectly with the zucchini! good job!"
"This dish is great! I was looking for a zuccini recipe that was similar to what I had as a child, and this is it! I used canned diced tomatoes and chicken broth, and halved the zucchini amount. It was just delicious! Thanks for posting this!"
"This was delicious. I love that something so healthy can be so good. Tastes like a pizza side dish!"
"Ran the zucchini through my food processor slicer & it turned out great. Thanks for the posting."
"Very tasty! Thanks for posting this recipe."
"Delicious! I cut the recipe in half and quarted the zucchini slices and also used chicken broth. I served this aside of broiled fish; perfect for a low carb diet."
"Very tasty way to prepare zucchini. We had it with Creamy Sun-dried Tomato,Roasted Red Pepper and Artichoke Pasta (#52282) and Chicken Provolone and Swiss Roulades #26893. "
"This recipe is awesome, I used a can of italian flavored diced tomatoes instead of fresh. I dont think it did anything but add to the dish! The zucchini and basil are a perfect match and I really enjoyed the parmesan on top. Thanks for an easy, healthy meal I took to work for lunch today!"
"Made this last night with the first zucchini gathered from our garden this year. It was fabulously delicious and we really enjoyed it! I will definitly be making it again. Since there are only two of us I halved the recipe, no problem, but wished afterwards I hadn't as I wanted more!! Thanks!"
"Great recipe and super quick preparation! Delicious and light!"
"Fluffy, I forgot to rate your recipe, sorry. I grow zucchini and love it. Also, 4 types of basil. This recipe really hit the spot, especially with the fresh basil. Thanks for sharing. "Uncle Bill""
"Very tasty quick and easy vegetable dish. I used fresh basil and really glad that I did, cant beat the fresh herb flavour, the addition of the Parmesan also gives it a great taste."
