I just love this recipe for so many reasons! It's low fat, creamy, healthy, easy and my kids eat it because they don't realize that there is zucchini in it! This recipe is shredded zucchini in a creamy parmesan/basil sauce!
I found this recipe on GroupRecipes.com. and tweaked it to make it low fat! It was posted by a member named Dutchie326. I was hooked the first time I tried it! And I was making it once a week for a very long time! It cooks up so fast and really satisfies my creamy pasta cravings!
