I whipped this up tonight, trying to use some of the zucchini from our garden. I also threw in some leftover chicken and made a complete meal! Quick and easy!

This is an awesome recipe. Thanks! I added 1 cup of sliced, fresh mushrooms & some white wine to the zucchini saute & used more cream cheese to make a thicker sauce. Also added a little chopped fresh parsley to the fresh basil. Yummy over noodles or pasta!

This was really good! I did a few things different. I took 3 costco frozen chicken breasts and boiled them in a bit of water. Then I used the water the chicken boiled in and used that in place of chicken broth the recipie called for and also added 1/2 boullion cube. I did add the broth when I added the zuchinni since I had cubed them in large pieces and needed them to have some liquid to become tender. I ommited the red pepper and added a bit extra cream cheese to make the sauce thicker. Very good and will make again with all the zucchini growing in the garder!

This was really good, and the family loved it - even the kids! I doubled the zucchini and chicken mixture (except for the stock) and used 3oz cream cheese. Worked well for 8oz of pasta. The cream cheese came through subtly w/o overpowering the dish.
