    I followed the recipe exactly and found this super easy to make and really tasty! It is great for a quick meal after work!  -  05 Nov 2012


    I've made this several times now and it is a favourite! I brown the onion and celery first, substitute the sour cream with yogurt and add 1/2 tsp each of dill, basil and pepper. Sometimes I will substitute the zucchini with a package of thawed spinach. I usually just mix everything (instead of layering) together.  -  09 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Hmmm...interesting. I had a little bit of a tough time getting passed the weird taste of the heated mayonnaise in this. It's a decent dish, if you don't have cream of mushroom soup on hand to make the real deal. I might make this again, but will leave out some of the mayo next time.  -  10 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
