    erika nunez from Canoga park, CA

    Wow! This recipe was good, but only one thing, I would add a littile hot pepper to make it a little hot.

    A Keeper Recipe

    HELEN LIM from Elk Grove, CA

    Enjoyed the side dish. Pretty easy to make. The sauce was a little runny though. Perhaps I didn't let it thicken enough. I'll see what happens the next time I make it.

    Amazing side!

    Debra Helwig from Athens, GA

    This recipe was easy to make and had so much flavor - I was able to pair it with a very plain grilled meat and have a zinger of a meal. Will use again and again. I halved grape tomatoes that I had on hand instead of the plum tomatoes and it worked fine.

    Zucchini and Corn in Cream

    Debbie Morris from BRIDGETON, MO

    This recipe is very good...a winner in the summer when you can't even give squash away! I could get takers if I included this recipe with each one. For variety, add a can of black beans...and yellow squash is just as tasty as zucchini. I serve buttered noodles on the side and those who want can mix them with the veggies.

    zucchini and corn in cream

    Louetta Nicolle from TORRANCE, CA

    I have made this dish twice, the first time I followed the directions and we thought it was really good, the next time I cooked the vegetables as directed, then added a small 4 oz can of black olives drained, and 1/2 cup shredded Jack cheese, poured it into an 8 inch greased baking dish,topped with some buttered bread crumbs, then sprinkled another 1/4 cup shredded jack cheese over the top and baked it for 20 minutes at 375° It was delicious.

    Zucchini and Corn

    Judy England from BRAZIL, IN

    I have loads of shredded zucchini frozen from the garden so I used it, along with the rest of veggies. I used less cream, and it turned out great. I served it with rice. What a great taste.

    Yummy....

    CHRISTY MOEGELIN from LOMPOC, CA

    This recipe was fabulous--I love vegetables in cream, so this was perfect for me...the next time I make it, I might use less milk though...my veggies were swimming!

    Zucchini and Corn in Cream

    elizabeth tierney from MARTINS FERRY, OH

    I had shredded up a big zucchini, and divided it into 2 cup portions. Some I froze. But I used 2 cups in this recipe. Served it in soup plates, with the cheese on top. My husband said it was GOOD. I used canned whole tomatoes, no fresh ones in the house.I left out the salt, and used red-hot sauce from a bottle. Turned out great!

    Rose Mary Escobar from HACIENDA HEIGHTS, CA

    I really enjoyed making this recipe. It reminds me of my grandmother. She used to make it often. The only other ingredient I added was chiles to it. Being of Hispanic decent, we have to add chiles to everything! Talk about childhood memories!

    Great Dish

    Lisa Miller from GLEN BURNIE, MD

    I made this for my husband, and he LOVED it. We use a lot of zucchini, and I will certainly make this again. I served it over a bed of rice as a main dish.
