As always, though, the best part is how quickly it all comes together. AND the sauce is made from scratch. For that alone, I hope you will be thanked and applauded.

    I’m doing keto Diet so if you took out the milk and added heavy cream or xhe cheese it would work I’m sure and perhaps be creamier sauce. I’m going to try it!

    This looks sooo good! Question though about the zucchini. After laying them out to dry (step 2), do you just add them all the way at the end for one minute (step 12), or am I missing a step somewhere in between? Thank you!!

    1. Hi! Yes, that’s all you do with the zucchini because, since it’s cut so thin, it will cook in no time. If you want to go longer, that’s okay, too, but you’re looking for that “pasta al dente” texture but without the pasta. 😀

My husband and I have been married for 30 years and he said this was one of the best dishes I’ve ever made! Wow!! Thanks so much for this recipe…..variety is always good!
