    This is definitely a five star recipe; and it's really easy to prepare. I did a couple things differently. I saw no need to peel the zucchini, and as a result it was not mushy, but nice and crisp. The unpeeled zucchini also gave great color to the dish! I cooked the rice separately. I brought a 15 oz. can of Swanson's 97% chicken broth and added enough water to make two cups of liquid. To the 2 cups of boiling liquid I added a tsp. salt, and one cup of long grain rice and cooked the rice until it was just tender. After the vegetables finish cooking I combined them with the hot cooked rice. Then as a finishing touch, I added 3/4 cup of Monterey Jack(suggestion of a previous Reviewer). I've cooked "Zucchini Saute" twice to raving reviews. It's a very tasty dish!  -  04 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Delicious! I would recommend, however, doubling the rice and using a larger variety of vegetables in place of some of the zucchini. I did so and it was magnificent. :-)  -  25 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Rather than add salt I used chicken broth in place of the water and it gave it a great flavor. Everyone loved it!  -  11 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
