    I used ground turkey instead of chicken breasts, and spiral gluten free pasta. I used Roasted Garlic and Herb Prego, and the meal was just delicious!

    I really liked this! So did my husband and 18 month old. A healthy variation to spaghetti! Complete meal with a salad and garlic bread. So simple to make and rather quick, too.

    This was a nice easy weeknight meal. Several moving parts at once but they all come together well at the end. The only thing it needs is more spice. Tips for those making it: be sure to cut the zucchini in thin slices, enough so that it cooks easily. I would put it in before the sauce so the slices become soft. The other thing is to be sure of is to cut the chicken into smallish chunks so that they cook faster.

    This is a refreshingly different way to have spaghetti rather than just the old standby of hamburger spaghetti sauce.....we loved it!
