i tried this recipe with angel hair pasta and also with rice noodles for gluten intolerant friend. Rice noodles were by far the best. added parmesan cheese. great cold. start here and go play with it. added sliced red pepper, pecans. this is a keeper.

This was nice, fresh and light! Two things I think this needed to make it perfect for us was a bit more olive oil (maybe another 2-3 Tbsps., I didn't measure) and lots of grated parmesan cheese. This would make a great side dish for any meat, seafood or fish. We actually preferred this room temp, as opposed to hot. I think next time I will add some red pepper flakes for a little spice. All in all, this was very good and I will def be making it again! Thanks for sharing. :)

I made this last night, using 3 very small cloves of garlic, and my husband and I found the garlic extremely overpowering, ruining what sounded like a good dish. We did add parmasean to it, which made it better tasting, but too thick/dry. With the leftovers, I threw them in a pan for a quick fry, and added some almond milk to make it creamy. It cooked up the garlic to give it a very nice flavour and the zucchini still had a crunch to it. Next time, I'll still marinate it, but fry it up prior to adding the pasta to mellow out the strong garlic.
