    It was very good. I liked that it was healthy too. I added the zucchini a bit before the tomatoes as I knew they would take longer to cook.

    This was great! Quick and easy. I served it with broiled chicken tenderloins. I'll use less onion next time.

    I cooked the zucchini a little more and added water to cook it. It was too undercooked before and even after i was not amazed by the complimentary flavors. It was a bit of a disappointment for me.

    Inspired by friends on the Weight Watchers program I wanted to serve them a ‘no points’ tasty vegetable side dish, and this was perfect. I could not get fresh basil at the time, and substituted a teaspoon or two of basil pesto made by local area grocery store Longo’s, which worked out great. Already made it again,

    Delicious! I will make it again. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I used normal tomatoes.

    I added mushrooms and it tasted great. Used the leftovers on an omelet and my toddler even liked it
    This was so good! I will make it again. I followed the recipe as is. We sprinkled some grated parmesan on veggies before eating.

    Very good! Didn’t have fresh basil, so I used 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning instead. Also used a Vidalia onion instead of a red one.. I have made this dish twice, and I foresee making it again and again!
