I made this and we all absolutely loved it. We have it quite often. I also have the same problem of the cheese not melting properly.

Hi there! Pre-packaged shredded cheeses have a flour coating them as a preservative, and this can prevent the cheese from melting as well as a block cheese you shred yourself. It's definitely hard to get several different blocks to blend, but if you're happy just using a mozzarella or provolone, you will probably have a better melting experience if you get a block and shred it yourself. We hope that helps!

My mom always loves to use zucchini in dishes like chocolate cake of all things, but I think it works great in other things like lasagna. This baked zucchini dish sounds like one of those comfort foods that you just have to have every once in a while. Have you ever used squash to make this recipe, or maybe tried it half and half of each vegetable?

I made this and it was good. While I was sauteing the zucchini and onion on top of the stove, my husband took a bite and ask why it needed to be cooked in the stove. I think it would be good done either way.

Even though I just used Parmesan cheese it was still messy and clumpy.

I think I will make this tonight. I am having baked chicken and I think this will go great with it. I have tomatoes, but I also have a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. I know that will add more sodium to the recipe. I also don't have the Italian blend cheese, so I will add a little more Parmesan cheese. I usually boil my zucchini with onion and diced tomatoes with green chilies, but this sounds so much better.

Just made this tonight. It's a wonderful vegetable dish! I added sliced Italian 3-Cheese Chicken sausage slices (one package) to add protein. I agree that I would add the cheeses after putting the veggies and meat in the prepared 2-qt baking dish. That way, the cheeses can be stirred down into the veggies and melt evenly and thoroughly. It was very good and I look forward to making it again!

I made this a second time and stirred in the Parm and Italian shredded cheese after taking off the fire. Unfortunately I could not stir it quite fast enough to the hot skillet ingredients before it started to melt into a stringy goo again but I quickly poured it into my prepared dish before it coated the skillet. Husband still likes it, great, and next time I think I will try layering the veggies in 2 layers and sprinkle the cheeses on each and maybe move the veggies around slightly with a spoon before adding the crumbs to the top.

I made this last night and it is so delicious. The only step I will do differently next time is wait and stir in the Parmesan, I used grated as the recipe did not indicate grated or shredded, and the Italian Blend shredded cheese after I take the skillet off the fire. I added it in the step the recipe directed and the cheese melted into stringy goo and coated the inside of the skillet which took me some time to clean afterwards. My husband commented that he liked the dish and that is a plus as he is a meat n' taters guy and likes his veggies, in his words, 'basic'.

This will keep me from making the same mistake.
