Made this tonight - very good and very easy. My two year old loved it. Nice summer pasta dish. Also for the person who didn't know how much zucchini - 2 cups grilled zucchini leftover - I just grilled fresh to put in mine. I saw the video on the right side that gives the details on what is needed and goes through the recipe - http://www.marthastewart.com/903071/herbed-ricotta-pasta-corn-and-zucchini?xsc=eml_edfsc_2014_07_21_template#ooid=dwb3MwbzrjxKgVxDkU6HT1iYDpPW2Y9O

Made it and loved it. I was surprised at how well the dill and basil went together. I added mushrooms and bacon. Very tasty!

Question: how much zucchini? chopped zucchini reserved from what? seems this recipe accompanies another elsewhere, but as it stands here alone, more info is needed.

Sounds great but it would be a help if you added nutritional values to these recipes. Thanks.

Trying to figure out why your printed recipes for Sarah's videos are so different. She tells how to make something then one goes to the recipe and gets completely different instructions and sometimes even different ingredients! Please take care to make them the same.
