Pretty good BUT that is IF you CUT THE SALT BY HALF OR SO. in Paula's house seasoning.Like Pula alot, but her house seasoning is WAY TOO SALTY for my taste.I sub that out in all hwr recipes. Sorry Paula, but I do a( modified low sodium diet, so the salt is overpowering to my pallet. Because zucchini and squash are bland it DOES need salt and pepper and herbs. I like a sea salt and garlic blend sold by McCormics ( appx 1/2 to. 3/4 t. Plus 1/4 to 1/2 t fresh cracked pepper....then add more to taste item not reviewed by moderator and published
well the house seasoning: 1 cup salt, 1/4 cup pepper.... why would you need that much season for six cups of squash???? just remove the house seasoning recipe or adjust it for this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
