Reviews for Zucchini Pasta
"Very good and easy! To the person who thought it was bland: I substituted sharp cheddar cheese for the low fat and it was excellent! Will definitely make again!"
"This is our favorite recipe. We've had it numerous times and served it to guests."
"This was so easy to make. I tweaked the recipe a little with fresh chives, dill and parsley and added some left over chopped chicken breast to make it a complete meal for our family. No leftovers from this recipe!"
"This dish has been a favorite for several years. in order to reduce the fat, we use Kraft No Fat shredded cheddar cheese. We also sauteed an onion and added it. Topped with dried chives for pretty presentation. This is a yummy meatless alternative! !"
"Very few zucchini recipes out there worth trying, but this is a keeper. Picky family that normally avoids zucchini (which I grow by the truckload) gobbled it right up in this form.. A+ from me!!"
"I was looking for ways to use up my zucchini & decided to give this a try. Glad I did as it was very good. Even my teenage son who insists he doesn't like zucchini polished off a big helping of it! I substituted sour cream because I didn't have any plain yogurt on hand."
"Yummy, I added grilled chicken breasts."
"This was a quick and easy dish to prepare. I also thought it was healthy and a new great way to use zucchini, I will be making it again"
"I love this. A great way to use zucchini!"
"This turned out better than I thought it would! For an extra special twist - use a vegetable curler on the zucchini - almost looks like wide pasta noodles!"
