I 'adopted' this recipe in August 2005. I have made it and think it is a great recipe as written. I hope you like it as much as I did. I also found it went well with a little lite sour cream spooned on top of each serving for a change. The following words come from the original person who posted this recipe: "A nice summer-time side dish. I suggest cutting the zucchini a bit larger than the carrots, since it cooks faster. Substitute dried herbs if you don't have fresh."
