Everyone in my house enjoyed this dish. I found that 1 1/2 good-sized zucchini were enough for what I needed. 5 large would have been way too much. It's hard to know what a large zucchini is when some can grow so very big. To cut down on calories, I changed this recipe by using low-fat cream cheese and fat-free half and half. It still made a nice creamy sauce. Be sure to drain the zuccini before adding it to the sauce. Next time, I will give it a little more of a punch by using some Tony's seasoning instead of the salt. I'll also cut the zucchini a little smaller and add a few low-fat goodies to it--mushrooms, onions, and/or roasted red peppers. This is a great dish. Thanks for a great recipe! I'll be making it again.

I won the BHG recipe contest with this recipe! It is great to see that so many folks like it. I thought it up while on the Aktins diet and craving Fettucini Alfredo! Now I'm craving this!

I added 1/2 cup chopped onions and 6 sliced mushrooms with the zucs and garlic. I added crunchy fried bacon (3 strips, crumbled),into the sauce just before serving. Delicious Atkins friendly recipe. I didn't need anything else as this was very satisfying.

Wonderful!! It is so complementary with a lot of other dishes!!! I used it with a salmon dish and it made a side dish with sauce that added a lot to the flavor of the fish too!! Thanks!!

I would love to give this more than 5 stars! The alfredo sauce is easy, creamy, and very yummy. I served half the sauce with the zucchini (I cut down the amount of zucchini called for) for hubby, who is on the Atkin's diet, and half on linguine for the kids. Everyone loved it!
