When I saw this on Closet Cooking I thought it looked like an easy and healthy side dish. I had a huge zucchini to use from a friends garden and thought this would be a good way to use some of it. It was very easy and I liked it, but Bill said he thought it tasted like grass. It does have a strong raw zucchini taste, and next time I might try throwing the zucchini in halfway through the cooking process to get it a little more cooked.
