Cream Pasta Sauce With Zucchini

This is AWESOME pasta sauce! Much different than alfredo-ish sauces, which I don't like. This one could be healthy, depending on which ingredients you use. I found the original version of this in a cookbook I received as a gift, but this is very different from that recipe.

My DH doesnt care too much for zucchini, but he loved this dish served over spaghetti; the only change I made was to saute the julienned zucchini with the garlic prior to making the sauce. I have made this twice in three days..thanks for sharing.

This tasted very good. (Creamy & flavorful) A great way to use up the plethra of zucchini from the garden!! It was easy to make. I didn't make any adaptations to the recipe. Thanks, "Meow!"....!

Wow!!! I also roasted some cauliflower 1 1/2 cup and 1 chicken breast 1/2 inch cubes. This will stay in my recipe box! Also instead of the whole zucchini...I used 1 1/2 cup shredded and squeezed as much water out as possible. Served with Cellentani(Barilla) pasta cause it held the sauce in every nook and cranny.
