  1. This was quick and easy.  I used oregano from the garden and it was delicious.  Will definitely make it again.

  2. An excellent and easy way to prepare the “baby” zucchini.  We had them for dinner last night with seared salmon and rice pilaf.  This recipe goes into the dinner file!!

  3. This is one of my favorite, quick go-to meals when I'm needing extra veggies for the day. And it goes with about any protein: fish, chicken, pork.

  4. I have a question abou the points. Where does the 3 points come from. 1 tablespoon of olive oil is 3 points – and if the recipe is for two people shouldn't the points be 1 or 2? Im just curious where the points came from other than the olive oil. Im thinking maybe I havent been accuratly counting my cooked vegetables if these are 3 points!

  5. I have a question about the calorie count on this dish. My calorie count in the olive oil is 120 per tablespoon. I just wanted to know how it added up to 87.3? On another note, I LOVED this recipe, I made it tonight. Thanks!

    I picked up some baby zucchini at the store and wasn't sure what to do with it. So, I googled baby zucchini recipes and look what came up first. I should have checked here first. Thanks again, Gina!!!

  7. I am a student and love quick and cheap stir-fry's. I am looking for some yummy spring stir-fry ideas? Any ideas? I'm sick of the regular blah and boring stir-fry 🙂 Thank you!! Love this site.

  8. I'm not Kelele, but I need more 0 and 1 point veggie sides. 🙂
    I do broccoli, zucchini (and yellow squash), asparagus, and green beans alot.

  9. Wow, that's the quickest reply I have ever gotten from a blog!! Thanks for the quick response! I have lost weight, 10lbs., by watching my fat and carbs. This site is perfect for it. I love the fact that you have a ton of veg recipes! I'm a newbie and excited to try many. I did the chicken with feta last night and there was none left! Does that tell you anything???
