I don’t normally cook vegetables with the sort of accoutrements (translation: expensive stuff) that this recipe suggests. Doing so on a regular basis would send my food costs soaring. Taken together, the condensed cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and herb-seasoned stuffing mix are costly. On the plus side, this delicious microwave recipe makes a pleasant change of pace. With the ingredients doubled or tripled and the cooking time slightly extended, this zucchini dish would be an excellent choice for a special dinner such as Thanksgiving or Christmas.
