I was so hooked on this recipe from the first time I tried it! I made it about once a week for a LONG time! And what's geat about this recipe is my kids didn't realize they were eating zucchini! I told them it was an onion and basil cream sauce! Hey, whatever works, right!

This recipe was posted on a cooking site by a member named Dutchie326. I added my photo.
