    This was okay, but a bit bland for our tastes. The basil didn't come through very well, and I had to add onion and salt to give a bit more flavor. It was easy to tweak, and pretty and colorful, but could have been better.

    Very nice recipe. The rice comes out with a bit of creaminess from the butter, and it is a great use for summer's bounty of zucchini. We ended up with 6 servings as a side dish. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

    Reviewed for ZWT8 visit to France. Easy to make and made a great meal with a grilled chicken breast. I used gluten-free chicken stock/broth to make this meal gluten-free suitable. We really enjoyed this dish and its definitely a make again recipe for my family. Photo to be posted also.

    So yummy! I used zucchini from our garden and I diced it and left them to drain with salt for an hour first. I also finished it with parsley as I had some extra. I made it as part of my "French feast" with recipe #235408, recipe #362455, and recipe #232735. Made for ZWT 8!

    Oh YUM, YUM, YUM! Mmm, this is a very pretty and super tasty pilaf! The zucchini and carrot add a lovely freshness and colour and the dried herbs go so well with them! I used dill in place of the basil as that's what I had on hand. Very yummy! I ate this as a main dish and that way it served two. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this yummy recipe with us, Hokies! It will surely be made again! Made and reviewed for 1-2-3-Hits November 09.
