CHEESY ZUCCHINI RICE

I love zucchini season.  And I love that I have an over abundance in my backyard.  And I especially love being able to sneak it into different recipes so that my kids will eat it.  Like this one.  We usually have rice for a side.  So why not make it amazing by adding cheese and zucchini!?
We have now made this recipe 3 times since.  I am telling you.  It is one of the best sides that we have ever had!  Everyone gobbled this down including the baby.
