    My perfect type of meal! Love chilli, tomato, zucchini and garlic! Fresh tasting and light. Made with vermicelli as I love the light texture! Will definitely make again! Cheers

    Yummy, quick lunch. Had a zucchini to use up, so this worked perfectly. No portabellas on hand, so subbed out a can of button mushrooms. My canned tomatoes had basil and garlic in them already, so I cut back on the amt of crushed garlic. Also added approx 1 tsp of salt. Note that the longer the "sauce" sits, the better the flavor soaks into the zucchini! Delish. Made or ZWT4.

    Excellent quick pasta dish! I added an extra chili pepper for a bit more spice and a good few pinches of salt. Very tasty! Thanks LittleKiwiChook! Made for ZWT 4.

    ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! My Hubby and I both agree that this is some of the best pasta we've had. I made it as directed with Jerusalem Artichoke Flour Fettuccine. Just PERFECT! I used fresh rosemary which just brought this over the top. My only addition was some coarse salt for serving. Freddy Cat says thanks for the pasta! Made for ZWT4.

    I really liked this. I used half a summer squash in addition to the zucchini, just to use it up, and used a jalapeno instead of the red chili cause thats what I had. My family is not fond of mushrooms but they all went back for seconds on this. Thank you for a tasty veggie filled recipe.
