This is a great recipe for Zucchini

Very good recipe for zucchini. Fast and easy. No oven required in summer temps. The first time I made it as written and added minced garlic (I put garlic in almost everything) and topped it with crushed red pepper. The second time I repeated everything the same but changed the cheese to a hard Italian cheese because that is what I had on hand. Both very good. I think that any flavorful cheese that you like would work great for this recipe.

Fast, Easy, & Cheap
Nice surprise

Very yummy recipe! First time I made it I forgot to pick up the canned chilies so I used 1/2 cup Herdez salsa verde. Second time I made it I made the recipe as written. LOVED both versions about the same. Will be making this often!

Fresh and sharp and YUMMY!

The fresh sweet zucchini contrasted against the sharp cheddar was delicious! Zucchini and onions in the frying pan smelled so good, this was surprisingly tasty.

Great way to highlight the zucchini flavor!
Great staple for use of zucchini

Simple recipe for use of zucchini. I did peel and quarter the zucchini so it was easier to mash. A lot of flavor for such few ingredients.

Great way to use Zucchini

This turned out great. I loved the flavor combinations. I used 2% cheese, and it still tasted great. Will definitely make again.

Quick and easy
