    This recipe provided a great base, but I have to agree with other reviewers that it needs a little kick to it to make it really good. I added some garlic flavored tofu from the first step and put about a cup of fresh mushrooms in with the shredded zucchini. I also doubled the garlic and will next time add some onion to give it a bit more flavor. The finished product smelled great and had good consistency, but I think the extra flavor is definitely a must.  -  13 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is zucchini week at our house since we've been given 10 of them! This was really different and so yummy. Everyone loved it, even the 3 year old! I added 1/2 an onion when I sauteed the garlic, b/c it needed to be used and we love onion. Also used about 6 cloves of garlic b/c we are big fans. I ended up needing to cook my zucchini at least 15 minutes to get the liquid out. Also added slightly more milk to get the sauce the consistency I wanted. Fresh basil is a MUST and made it awesome!!! Wish I could give this more than 5 stars!  -  03 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yet another Oh MY!! Added slivered carrots, chopped broccoli, artichoke hearts & chopped onion; finished with Asiago cheese & white wine in the sauce. Used some cajun spice and lots of cracked pepper. Was great last night, but today, it stepped into the next world. Thank YOU!  -  11 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
