Delicious! I sautés lots of minced garlic before adding the red pepper and zucchini. I also added mushrooms, an Italian seasoning blend and minced onion. Served this with garlic bread. The whole family loved it

Disappointed. It was very bland. I even tried adding garlic, salt and pepper but it still needed something.

This turned out to be a hit! My husband loved it and just kept saying how good it was and my children wanted to take some leftovers home with them. I did add a bit of garlic powder to it just to spruce up the flavor. I also made the zucchini fritters that you can find on Yummly to go with this recipe. Those were amazingly good as well and gave a nice change of texture with this pasta dish.
