Pretty tasty dish, I liked it. The recipe doesnt say how much zucchini to put in, so I just tossed in whatever frozen I had around and it was fine.

This is a fabulous recipe! Easy with wonderful flavors! I chopped up the scallions and put them to the side more for garnish...when cleaning up the kitchen I found them...forgot to use them! I also used fresh oregano (it looked good in the garden!) I also used fresh I didn't need to uncover and bake the final 5 minutes. Thank you for a wonderful pasta meal!
