    if you boil zuchini for 10 minutes you'll have nthing to serve!!!  -  02 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I'm going to give this a "5" for taste but I can't imagine boiling zucchini for 10 minutes. I sauteed the zucchini along with onion and the seasonings as called for in the recipe. Cook the pasta al dente and then add it with some of the pasta cooking water and let the entire mixture simmer to blend the flavors. This would also make a delicious vegetable side dish without the pasta...  -  20 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was much better when I cooked the zucchini in olive oil until almost black on both sides.  -  03 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
