Delicious! I always jack up the amount of zucchini- I use a whole pound package from Trader Joe's, & half the amount of pasta so it has enough sauce still (since the extra zucchini soaks it all up).
If you do not want to modify the recipe- definitely make sure to use the full amount of oil! It looks like too much when you 1st make it, but the amount is perfect.
However, last night I tried a low-fat version & it came out just as well! Use 1/4c oil, 1/4c broth (I am vegetarian so I used veggie broth) & a splash of white wine. The oiliness is still enough to make a creamy sauce, & the flavor from the wine & broth blends really well- for half the calories! Add extra red pepper flakes & parsley if you want additional flavor with no more added fat. I also grill up some fake chicken sometimes as an added protein topper.
