This is a yummy diet comfort food. Substitute ground turkey or soy crumbles for an even lighter version.

I am not sure what happened. I followed the instructions but the zucks were hard and the meat was quite blend. Thank you anyway

Very yummy and easy to make! I also substituted tomato paste for the sauce, and I added in some sauted mushrooms too for more flavor. Great recipe!
