This is very similar to a Mexican dish called calabacitas. The differences are to omit the bacon-but you can use bacon grease, add diced tomatoes and some garlic while cooking the zucchini, or Mexican squash. You can also add chopped green chili. Cover and cook diced zuch and tomatoes with spices, onion and garlic until tender (10-15 mins. Don't over cook). Add corn (I use canned), heat through and top with cheese--cover till melted. I use cheddar cheese but I'm sure the MJ is very good. Mexican squash looks like zucchini except that it is a light green color.

What a wonderful sidedish this was! My whole family enjoyed it more than the pork roast I served it with. I was too lazy to use corn from a cob, so I just thawed some frozen corn, and I accidentally bought Colby cheese, but it tasted great. I also diced up the bacon before cooking it, as I find it easier than crumbling it afterwards. This will be a regular dish from now on.

Fantastic! Everyone loved it even my brother who despises vegetables. The cheese seemed unnecessary and I will probably leave it out next time.
