    This is a great way to use up all that extra zucchini you have! Turn it into pasta! This dish is so good and easy! And for all you low-carbers out there, it fits the bill perfectly!

      This recipe is fantastic! I really didn't miss the pasta at all... really!! Since I don't eat meat I added a small handful of TVP (textured vegetable protein) to the tomatoes as they simmered and half of a vegetarian beef flavored bouillon cube. I knew the sausage would add lots of flavor so wanted to substitute it somehow. The long strips of zucchini did remind me of spagetti, and the sauce was perfect. I thought I'd be missing the onion in it but didn't at all. Oh, I also added a bit of crushed red pepper and used dried basil. Sorry about all the substitutions leeannr, but I must say that this is a delicious, easy and healthy meal. I really love it and will be making it often.

      My family really liked this one. I just used shredded pasta though. Just before it was all heated through I added some more so there was a different texture to it. Also all I had on hand was pork sausage but it tasted just fine.

      I made this for the first time tonight and loved it! My boyfriend said he preferred the zucchini over pasta - hands down! Delicious!
