Had everything on hand except the zuchinni so left out. I only added 1 teaspoon of pepper flakes and still found to be way too spicey to eat. I also added less oil as this seemed like way too much. I will try to make again maybe if my family will let me as not their favorite and they like spicey food. I even added a can of chopped tomatoes. Looks nice...sorry only two this time.

I found this easy, inexpensive, and amazing. I have tons of zucchini and tomatos at this time of year and look for different things to do with them. I have used the sauce two more times! No one smells good after, but it is so yummy!

Outstanding! We loved this dish! The only change I made was to cut the red pepper flakes in half(1t) and added some fresh mushrooms that I had on hand. Totally restaurant quality. This one will go into our monthly rotation. Thank you Kuntryqtpi!
