MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 15, 2010

The recipe was OK, certainly not bad, just kind of blah. I tried sauteing the zucchini in olive oil rather than steaming in microwave to add a little flavor. It took no additional time as I was able to do so while water boiled and pasta cooked.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2010

This was a simple and delicious dish. Prepping the zucchini in the microwave was a real time-saver. Next time I might lessen the amount of oregano (it was a little overpowering for my taste) but overall this was delicious and I'll definitely be making it again... soon!
