    Wonderful way to use up all that zucchini from the garden. I made this exactly as posted except I used olive oil. I'll be putting Parmesan cheese on to serve. We are watching carbs and this fits the bill nicely. Love this one and thanks for sharing.

    Yum! We all enjoyed this, even our young kids. The herbs and tomatoes were a great addition to the zucchini. The cooking time was perfect and resulted in a tender yet not over-cooked squash that made this a real Mediterranean treat. I'll definitely make this often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Judy from Hawaii. Made for the Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

    I thought this was very fresh tasting and flavorful. I love fresh zucchini and this was the perfect way to fix it. I used minced garlic instead of garlic salt and extra virgin olive oil, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you for such an enjoyable side dish!

    This is very similar to my recipe for zucchini & tomatoes so I was very happy with your recipe. The only sub I make is to use garlic cloves. Thank you for posting!
