      This recipe was fabulous! I didn't think something so healthy could taste that good. My zucchini noodles were questionable at first but they turned out great in the end. Watching the video really helped fill in the gaps for me. Thanks for sharing!

      I'm not going to rate this one because I wasn't able to pull it off. I just couldn't get the zuchinni to peel nicely into fettuchini like strips. I didn't see the video until now, but I think the key is to lay the zuchinni down on the counter while peeling - I had mine standing up and needless to say it didn't work. I tried to make the sauce, and it says one large lemon and zest - I threw in about half the lemon and zest and it was really really lemony so I had to dilute it with several cans of tomato. So, I may try this one again sometime after watching the video, but I just thought I'd post this so other people can avoid the same tripups I had!

      So yummy! I love to eat healthy, and this recipe allowed me to do that without sacrificing any flavor or portion size. There is a lot of prep, so my only suggestion would be to start some of the prep earlier in the day. It was the first time I used a Julienne peeler, and am glad I bought one, it's a great tool to have in the kitchen, it gives veggies a new spin.
