  • Great way to use zucchini. My husband even ate some of it, which he usually doesn't do when I put something together like this. I served it over brown rice and added a can of diced tomatoes since the can of stewed tomatoes didn't look like enough. - 5/24/10

  • 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.

  • I made the Italian Zucchini Pot because I had all the ingredients, and made it just for me. Didn't even offer it to my hubby, who does not like vegetables... I thought It was very good by itself, but I put it over some mashed potatoes which made it excellent. - 9/28/08
