    I thought this made a great side dish. I did substitute oregano for marjoram and added shrimp as some had suggested. I also seasoned to taste. I used macaroni I had on hand instead of buying penne, so I quartered the zucchini before slicing it and cut the shrimp into bite sized pieces to compensate for the smaller pasta.

    i made this dish as a meatless meal with salad and french bread. when I added the ricotta and tossed to mix It got lumpy and not creamy as I had hoped it would. Any sugesstions would help as I would try again.

    This was somewhat bland, but maybe because I omitted the garlic and my marjoram was old. I added some yellow bell pepper along with the zucchini, which added some nice color, and substituted noodles I had on hand for the penne. We ate this as a meatless main course.
