Although I took your advice and thought roadmap, I did actually stick largely to recipe, my only ' changes ' were to use penne, since I didn't have pappardelle (but another time I would rather use the pappardelle, I think it would complement this dish very well), and chicken rather than tuna, simply because I'm not very fond of tuna, and even the smell is a bit off-putting. I think tuna would be excellent in this though, it would really lend itself to blend with the other ingredients and flavours. I loved the use of zucchini ribbons, and all in all, we really enjoyed this easily prepared dish, rich and tasty, an excellent pasta dinner. Thanks duonyte, made for PRMR tag game

I did cut the recipe in half, for my DS and I, and other than using shallots, vegetable broth, and left out the salt, made as written. Ending result was a nice light, vibrant lunch that we enjoyed. Made for 1-2-3 hits.

I really enjoyed this! The only changes I made were to add two cloves of minced garlic along with the shallots; and to use nonfat condensed milk instead of cream. It turned out beautifully, and we enjoyed every bite. I really loved the fact that the texture of the zucchini ribbons was so similar to the pasta strands; it made me feel like I was eating far more pasta than I really was. Since I had fettuccine noodles instead of pappardelle, I used a julienne cutter to match the thinner shape instead of just a vegetable peeler. I used canned tuna, as written, but would also love to try this with salmon- possibly even smoked salmon. Overall, a great recipe, and I'm very glad to have tried it!

This was a wonderful lower cal/fat alternative to tuna noodle casserole which was very much enjoyed. I cut down on the cream and also used egg noodles. Very good! Thanks for sharing!
