  • “What a great way to use up some of the zucchini in my garden.I used sesame oil and added some minced garlic and Asian seasoning.I will be making this often.Thanks for sharing such a great recipe, Rita.Made for July, 2008 Bevy Tag.”

  • “Delicious Dish!I added a little bit of ginger and garlic powder.This is a dish I will repeat preparing for my family.Quick and Easy!Prepared for January 2008 Photo Swap.”

  • “Was a thinking it wasn’t going to need sugar, but it really gave it a lovely flavor without tasting “sweet”. Great side dish!!! Will make again. I used the garlic too. Next time might use fresh green beans!”

  • “I loved this, I used Splenda and soy sauce. Tasty quick side dish, thanks for sharing.”

  • “I really enjoyed this – except – that was way too much salt. I will no doubt make this again but cut back to maybe a half a teaspoon (instead of 1 1/2). More salt could be added later if someone wanted it. My picky teen son ate several bites of this – and liked it much better than regular squash.”
