Yum! We all enjoyed this, even our young kids. The herbs and tomatoes were a great addition to the zucchini. The cooking time was perfect and resulted in a tender yet not over-cooked squash that made this a real Mediterranean treat. I'll definitely make this often. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Judy from Hawaii. Made for the Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.

I thought this was very fresh tasting and flavorful. I love fresh zucchini and this was the perfect way to fix it. I used minced garlic instead of garlic salt and extra virgin olive oil, but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you for such an enjoyable side dish!

This is very similar to my recipe for zucchini & tomatoes so I was very happy with your recipe. The only sub I make is to use garlic cloves. Thank you for posting!
