I am the BIGGEST penne alla vodka lover - but it is loaded with heavy cream. this recipe uses greek yogurt and half and half instead of heavy cream! greek yogurt has tons of protein and makes this sauce sooo creamy with so much less fat and calories. this is going on repeat at my house!

Killer zoodle recipe! the sauce was a delight and super easy to make. I like to add the zoodles to the pan in bunches so some are more cooked than others when eating them, it varies up the texture is a great way.

This sauce is perfect! Such a simple dish but with incredible flavor. I love finding new ways to make zoodles, and this one is definitely at the top of my list.

Really good sauce. Used 2 huge zucchini, and I probably could have used 2 more with the amount of extra sauce. My kids ate it with regular noodles, but i think it tasted better with zoodles. I also realized that we didn’t have vodka, so we substituted white cooking wine. Still really delicious.

I LOVE cream pastas but I’m vegan so it makes it so hard! Not to mention not diet friendly because of the butter and oil. But instead of Greek yogurt and half and half I blended silken tofu until super smooth and added that instead!! Almost no fat and LOADED with protein with dish was amazing!

The sauce was delicious, but I think next time I need to blanch the zoodles. They were a little too crunchy. Also, I failed to cut the zoodles, and that was a huge mistake! Some of them were probably two feet long and that wasn’t easy to eat! I’ll try it again.
