I love this recipe, but I changed it to make a lighter meal, I use fresh linguine pasta and I don't use the mozzerella cheese, I only use fresh parmesan cheese, sometimes I add extra zucchini or use summer squash.

I love this recipe. It is one of my favorite dishes. My husband is lucky he doesn't get it twice a week. I add yellow squash and for myself, a little less parmesan (although I put it on the table for others to add). It is a delicious and pretty dish and I highly recommend it.
