Very clever, very attractive and very tastey recipe, bmxmama. I subbed evaporated milk for the half-and-half but made no other changes. This one will be a repeat.

I enjoyed this very much. Next time i will cook it a little longer to make it more tender.

This is a great guilty free pasta dish! Using no pasta!!! Making 1/2 the recipe using yellow summer squash slicing them to replicate fettucini. My 2 equaled out to 6 cups when sliced. I did cook the squash longer for dh like it tender. Then reduced the stock down to almost nothing(just couldn`t discard all the flavors and nutrients in it.I did use 1/2 bulb of roasted garlic! And plenty of fresh basil and added some fresh grated nutmeg. The aroma is scrumptious!
