    This is so easy and taste really good. I've made this two times and really enjoy it. I use an olive oil spray instead of the butter, and sprinkle alittle garlic powder on. I'm a fan of zucchine. - 1/25/09

    I really love this recipe and have been making it all season. I do skip the cheese, use a little olive oil, and salt/pepper instead and make sure that I cut thick slices. I'm not joking when I say that this is my new substitute for potato chips! - 8/25/08

    Its wonderful! I have always enjoyed zucchini this way. *Calorie reducing tip* I learned from a friend though is use the butter flavored cooking spray instead of oil or actual butter. It has all the taste of butter and ABSOLUTELY NO CALORIES or fat :D Great on popcorn or veggies too. - 1/18/09

    This was very tasty and easy! I also used the olive oil spray and sprinkled slices with Greek seasoning before adding the cheese. I baked the zucchini slices a bit before broiling, and they weren't as mushy. I served the slices with a side of no-sugar-added marinara sauce for dipping. Yum! - 5/8/09

    Very, Very good. I followed the recipe perfectly and they were awesome. I think that next time I will have to roll the strips into the same amount of cheese. For some reason more landed on the aluminum foil than on the zucchini when I pulled them out, but still tasted great! - 7/6/09

    This is a great, simple snack or side dish. I tried using yellow squash, with extra virgin olive oil, and romano cheese. I also added a bit of fresh lemon juice and some dried sage. The timing was tricky (it's hard to get them crispy without burning it a bit), but it came out fantastic. - 5/8/09
