Our families enjoys pasta. But it 99% of the times it's the same ol' spaghetti with marinara sauce. Don't get me wrong, we still enjoy it very much but I just wanted to try something different. Creamy sauces like alfredo are usually too rich and heavy. But this one came out pretty good. Found the recipe from Allrecipes.com, made a couple changes like adding more garlic and pesto, and throwing in some zucchini, but for the most part stuck to the recipe. It was flavorful and not heavy at all. A keeper recipe.
