    Once could certainly argue that this needs "seasoning," but I would argue this is perfect just as is - I like the fresh, clean, unenhanced flavor of good, fresh vegetables.  -  28 May 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A classic, simple and tasty side dish. Thoroughly enjoyed the fresh taste of the corn and zucchini. Very nice Sara B.  -  23 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Coming from a Hispanic background, in our culture we call this "calabacitas and corn" it's the same recipe only we add some mild or hot green chili to the bunch. Adds a nice spice and flavor to the whole dish.  -  29 Apr 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
