Zucchini Alfredo

Zucchini Alfredo created by kymgerberich

I was looking for a different way to cook zucchini besides the usual casserole, bread or cake. I found this recipe in a Better Homes & Gardens magazine. Prep time includes letting zucchini drain after cutting.

    Everyone in my house enjoyed this dish. I found that 1 1/2 good-sized zucchini were enough for what I needed. 5 large would have been way too much. It's hard to know what a large zucchini is when some can grow so very big. To cut down on calories, I changed this recipe by using low-fat cream cheese and fat-free half and half. It still made a nice creamy sauce. Be sure to drain the zuccini before adding it to the sauce. Next time, I will give it a little more of a punch by using some Tony's seasoning instead of the salt. I'll also cut the zucchini a little smaller and add a few low-fat goodies to it--mushrooms, onions, and/or roasted red peppers. This is a great dish. Thanks for a great recipe! I'll be making it again.

    I won the BHG recipe contest with this recipe! It is great to see that so many folks like it. I thought it up while on the Aktins diet and craving Fettucini Alfredo! Now I'm craving this!

    I halved this recipe for the four of us. This was easy to put together and very good.

    This was soooo good. My husband was in heaven over it's tastieness. I also added onions and some canned artichoke hearts to the mix. It will be a regular year round.

    I added 1/2 cup chopped onions and 6 sliced mushrooms with the zucs and garlic. I added crunchy fried bacon (3 strips, crumbled),into the sauce just before serving. Delicious Atkins friendly recipe. I didn't need anything else as this was very satisfying.
