    Very tasty! I added mushrooms in the mix because I absolutely love mushrooms. I also added a tsp. of paprika and a tsp. of garlic. This was delicious! I also cut up an entire yellow squash and zuchinni, and put 3/4ths of the veggies in a gallon ziplock bag and put it in the freezer for later use. - 7/21/09

    I thought this was very good, (added some nonfat chicken broth). My husband likes squash/zucchini casserole style, so today he mashed up the leftovers, added whole wheat cracker crumbs & lowfat cheese - made a whole new dish! it was delicious! - 6/27/10
