Notes

I love, love, love zucchini and I try to make it every way possible thru the summer when there is plenty of fresh zucchini! I also love cheesy rice! This zucchini rice was sooooo good! Everything about it was perfect! I could of eaten the entire pan! OMGosh, I can't tell you how delicious it was! If you have zucchini coming out of your ears from the garden, you have got to make this!
