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.

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

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...
