  • Reviews

  • “It’s not gourmet or anything, but it was quick and easy to make. What I lovedis that it was all ingredients I had laying around in my kitchen, and it made for a fast quick lunch I could make my husband.And he approved, told me he would like it again some time!”

  • “The idea is good but even onion rings and garlic butter can’t save blanched zucchini. But it was a very good try! Certainly looks good and it would make a good quick side dish.The younger the zucchini the better, and I suggest homegrown or organic produce.”
