Recipes: Zucchini With Farfalle

This. Was. So. Good.


It was like alfredo sauce only it was homemade. With Zucchine. And do yourself a favor and almost double the sauce and add shrimp. It was possible the best dinner I ever made. And don't be skimpy on the pepper in the sauce. It makes a bunch. Note: I didn't use 5 zucchini more like three.

"Cream Sauce with sauteed veggies over bow tie noodles. Serves four as a main course, 6-8 for first course."
