While the flavor was there, the actual cooking directions were way off. When I served the pasta and sauce, the pasta was half-done at best. I wasted $20 after mixing everything, cooking it and mixing it with half cooked pasta. Do yourself a favor and cook the pasta normally and mix with the rest. Not impressed at best.
I’m so glad I tried this recipe; we really enjoyed it! I did sauté the zucchini with some chopped onions until soft (we don’t care for crisp-tender zucchini) and doubled the seasonings. I also added oregano and some black olives. It was delicious, and I will be making this again!
This recipe is quick, delicious and inexpensive. My whole family adores it. I like to add a little chopped green pepper, celery and onion to the ground beef or turkey, while it's browning. I also add a little sugar to the tomato sauce for flavor. The cheddar cheese is great, but my sister likes it with shredded mozzarella. So yummy! Been making it for years.
I followed the recipe exactly and it was quite good. I will definitely make it again. So glad I found another way to make spaghetti (my husband's favorite).
Nobody liked this. I am giving it a three-star instead of a two-star because I did have to substitute tomato paste & water for the tomato sauce. That may have changed the taste somewhat.
I did like this very much I liked having the zucchini for something different, but it is a little bland to me. It needs a bit more flavor. Next time I will add some more seasonings, but besides that it was good.
