My twist: replace zuchhini with diced sweet potato, replace ricotta cheese with 4 oz light cream cheese and stir into pasta with the pesto. (Tip: pre-make basil pesto and freeze in ice cube tray or use store bought brand for quick dinner preparation.)
My sister and two nephews drove 8 hours for a surprise visit this past weekend. She brought with her sweet potatoes and cauliflower from my grandmother's garden!!! We served them up with pork tenderloin.
It was so nice having them over and sharing this special meal, it almost felt like a mini-Thanksgiving around the table.
