    northernmom's Note:

    This is a super helpful recipe I found in a "Company's Coming" cookbook. The whole family tucks into this dish with a salad on the side. I also like it because it follows the technique of Hamburger Helper (read: easy to do) without having to buy a box from the store.

      This was great. My family got up for seconds and thirds which is very rare for us since we try not to eat past the full feeling. This was a great way for me to use some Zuc since I never know exactly what to do with it but always buy it. I did make a few adjustments just for what I had on hand. I used 3/4cup bottled mushroom stems/pcs. 1/2tsp thyme, 2 cups tomato sauce and elbow pasta. I used grated swiss cheese and the fam. topped theirs with parm. chz. Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

      My family loved this simple but delicious recipe. I actually used Prego's chunky garden sauce because it has zucchini already as well as plenty of other veggies. I also used can mushrooms and minced garlic instead. Even as a leftover dish it was sooo good!

      This is a standby recipe that I've made over a dozen times. Delicious! I omit the zucchini, mushrooms, and cheese, but otherwise as written, and I double it for my large family. Thank you for this great one pot dinner recipe!
