Zucchini is combined with sesame seeds and parmesan cheese to create a delicious side dish. You might find it is done sooner than 20 minutes - start checking after 10.
This would rate 5 stars if it weren't for the fact the cooking time was off. This was a very tasty blend of ingredients, and was attractive to serve, but at 20 minutes the zucchini all but turned to mush. What a shame. I would suggest checking this after 10 minutes, then adding a minute or two as needed until your desired degree of tenderness. Twenty minutes, I believe, would be way too overcooked for anyone. It lost both color as well as flavor, and the mushy texture is unappealing. - 16 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This one's gotten rave reviews from all my friends. I also cut the olive oil in half, and add a bit more sesame seeds. I find it works best to coat the zucchini in oil, then sprinkle on the other ingredients and mix. - 26 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I added a can of black beans and a can of chickpeas to the recipe to make it a main dish instead of a side dish. I doubled everything except for the zucchini and it turned out great. The beans and zucchini were coated with a flavourful, crisp coating that my husband and I both enjoyed. - 07 Aug 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
