i left out the cayenne pepper; seasoned with S&P; tossed with cooked pasta. it was a good side dish...not too strong flavors, easy to make.

This recipe was awesome! Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. I did end up adding another teaspoon of the vinegar and seasoning with salt at the end. YUM!!!!

Very good. I added some fresh mushrooms and seasoned the dish with fresh thyme. I didn't use strict measurements so probably ended up using a little more vinegar than the recipe stated.

This recipe calls for 1/4 cup olive oil, divided; it never tells what to do with the other 2 tablespoons. It was good, though!!

This was good! I left out the cayenne (for my mom) but changed nothing else (though I did just eyeball amounts). I will be making it again!

I thought this recipe was okay, but nothing special. I found the vinegar taste a little out of place and though I ususally love the kick of cayenne, it didn't work for me in this dish. I prefer ...

With such good reviews, I was surprised at how much I disliked this. The vinegar gave the zucchini a sharpness that was most unpleasant.

Easy recipe -- very good. Nice change to zucchini

the vinegar gives this a funny taste. Would have been better had it been left out.
