Overloaded with Zucchini August 03, 2015

I cooked the onion and hamburger together, then sauteed the zucchini separately with a little olive oil and garlic. Dish is good, but needs more zip. Will add more garlic and maybe a touch of chili powder next time. Definitely a keeper.

OMG, my family love this recipe just as it is... The only thing i would change is to make more than the recipe calls for...lol

This recipe is great if you have been advised that it is medically necessary to eat bland foods

Lisa January 01, 2014

This recipe was great! I added mushrooms and used brown minute rice instead of white. Very good... we topped it with some sour cream. YUM!! This could easily be made into a Mexican dish with a little spice and by adding bell peppers...

Easy to make, tasty. I substituted brown rice for the white. My family liked it a lot and I really liked that it gets made in one pan!

One of our very favorites. All 5 of us love it. The only change I made was to cook regular brown rice for one hour and add it to the cooked dish. Absolutely delicious.
