    This is a nice one dish meal that is quick to the table. I used whole wheat pasta and crookneck squash when I made mine today. I did not add any cheese today but I know I'd like it with the cheese. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup game 2010

    I made this as written except I didnt have quite enough chili powder for a full TBS so used about a tsp. I also used thin egg noodles (they're already broken up;) ) This was very tasty. I am not sure I'd say it tasted "southwestern" but it was good!! I may use taco seasoning if I made this again. Thanks Di!

    I also looked this up in Quick Cooking-just to compare notes! I won't rate this cuz I made changes! I actually cooked my whole wheat spaghetti separately & added it to the skillet it at end, so I skipped the water & used some salsa instead. I used taco sauce for the tomato sauce, and didn't use any salt-also used a lot less chili powder! I used reduced fat mexican cheese & lean ground turkey. It was fabulous! I've been looking for a mexican dish that used zucchini so I was so happy when I stumbled upon this. Thank u for sharing this.
