glad to see a healthy version of this classic..used Hellman's Balsamic Mayo and Dijon mustard in it and it really was much better tasting while still keeping calories under control.
I cut the recipe in half. I used pasta shells instead of noodles, chopped fresh spinach instead of zucchini, added chopped mushrooms, chopped red bell pepper. Since I cut the sauce ingredients in half I was afraid it would be dry so I poured 1/4 cup chicken broth over the whole dish before I baked it. I didn't layer the cheese. I waited until the casserole was cooked through and then added 1/4 cheese on top and let it melt. Turned out really tasty. Would definitely make again.
I like the idea of adding zucchini to this recipe to add some veggies to the dish...it was very tasty... we enjoyed it. I served it w/a baked tomato dish.
