    This recipe looks so awesome that with an abundance of Zuchinni coming from the garden this was the recipe that popped into my head. I made a slight variation because after coming home from a long day knowing that I had pasta sauce in the cabinet only to find that I didn’t. I had Alfredo pasta sauce and it turned out to be such a delish substitute. And just like pastas, it was better the next day. However, I still can’t wait to try your recipe as is. I know it’s going to be as great as it looks. Yum! Recipes this good, I could become a vegetarian.
