I love this recipe. I am busy with small kids so we take several shortcuts to make prep fast and easy. I use a bag of frozen squash slices, bag of seasoning blend (onions, celery, bell pepper), couple cans of Rotel tomatoes, grated parmesian and then I just have slice the zucchini! Makes a whole dinner with some parmesian chicken and some brown rice.

I substitute Owen's Sausage and heavy cream instead of ground beef and milk. Plus I add broccoli chops and we LOVE THIS!!!!!
