This is a wonderful vegetable dish. My significant other really enjoyed it and wants me to make it frequently.

This is one flavorful zucchini casserole! The herb cheese spread, seasoning, fresh tomatoes, onion, zucchini, and the crescent roll crust makes this a tasty side dish. And it's pretty easy to whip up too! Hearty enough, it could even be a light dinner.
