  • Very good. I added ground turkey to it to add some protein. - 11/12/11

  • Great recipe, but you have to get rid of the water from the zucchini. Shred or chop it, put it in a strainer, salt it, let stand for 15 minutes, then squeeze the water out as best you can. Time consuming but it makes it less watery. Add a little flour to thicken the sauce. Loved it! - 8/24/11

  • I thought this was really tasty. I have a food processor (my favorite item in my kitchen) and it takes all the work out of this dish. Because of the zucchini, it is a little watery. I had 3 servings making it a filling and delicious, yet healthy meal. Leftovers were even better. - 10/27/10

  • it was just very blah... and the shredded zucchini was not very yummy... it might be okay if you sliced the zucchini... but it was watery & blah... wasted an entire pan of food and quite a bit of time - 9/8/10

    I use a hand grinding shredder but anything that doesn't shred it too small would work.
