Did you try cutting back on the oil and subbing Splenda? I don't know how well Splenda would hold up in a hot pan, maybe sprinkling it on just before it's finished popping. I'm going to try it tomorrow.
Egads.. guess I had better be careful about the recipes I review, huh?
I did try it with splenda and I also reduced the oil to about half. It wasn't nearly as good. The Splenda took on sort of an odd taste.. not caramely like sugar. I don't plan on trying it any time again soon, well because it really is a once in a great while treat. I will try part splenda and part sugar next time, .. maybe some time this fall and I'll cut back the oil by 1/4 to a 1/3 insteead of 1/2.
Yes I am a major allrecipes junkie... sigh. I think I make a new recipe every week, if not two. I have hundreds of recipes save " just in case I ever need them"
Not stuff I'll ever make for me, but for others.. not idea just when those times will be but I keep doing it. I guess its cheaper than buying cookbooks, huh?
Anyway,,another a really excellent recipe for using the zucchini is the allrecipes no cream pasta primavera.. with more veggies of course. I made that for dinner this week
