      I just loved this dish although I was pretty sceptical when I started cooking it due to the different reviews it has recieved so far. I was too lazy to wash the food processor afterwards so I just put the mint and almonds into the mortar. The result was chunky to beginn with, so I was prepared for the texture of the dish. I threw the Zucchini and Garlic into a pan and sauteed them, then aded the noodles, almonds and mint and tossed everything. I served it with freshly grated parmesan cheese and ground black pepper. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe. I will definatley make this more often.

      WHAT THE?!? I love zucchini, mint, almonds & pasta- so this seemed like a good idea. But the mint was overwhelming and the garlic coved up everything else. Any zucchini flavor was lost entirely. In addition, the almonds only added to the entire dish's weird texture. I'd say don't waste your ingredients - I think pan fried zucchini and almonds with a spring or two of mint and no garlic might be a better option over pasta- with maybe some tomato sauce, alfredo or cheese sauce to add more moisture and flavor. Yeah, that might be a MUCH better dish.

      Save your pasta, zucchini, almonds, mint, etc. for other dishes. This combo is only good if you are trying to lose weight - a few bites and you will lose your appetite completely. The almonds give this dish a gritty texture like eating fine sand. If you do try this follow the advice of Thorsten, a half cup of mint is likely way too much. I still feel dizzy.
