I wish all of the ingredients were measured out; I didn't know how big a "medium" zuc. was, so I think I used too much. The flavor was EXCELLENT with even half the garlic and some pepper. I'm going to can/freeze some zucs for use throughout the year in this recipe. - 8/17/09

Sorry about that - I think it is an adaptable recipe if you like zuc use more if not, less. Under the nutritional info full ingredients info it calls for 3 C - so that would equal to 1 C per med zuc according to SP calculations. Hope that helps.
