Okay I made this a few nights ago. I enjoyed it. I ate the whole bowl. But I wasn't in a rush to make it again because the sauce was a lil too sweet for my liking. I never liked Sweet spagetti sauce, I always liked the more saltier, mild, and not sweet sauce. However I didnt have any cayenne so was that maybe why it was so sweet? Or next time, just dont use any dates, and it wont be as sweet?
It was good. I liked it. But it didnt make me wanna try it again. I liked the noodles though. YUM. Never tried Zuchinni before, loved it.

I don't like it quite that sweet either, so I add less dates, more sun dried tomatoes, lots of cayenne, I double the spices and herbs, and I use no oil, I like it this way.
so, less dates at least.

I could not have said it any better. A recipe is a guide line of some sorts. Sometimes you must follow it. I just don't follow too many. I have to make it my own by adding or subtracting things. It's all in what you like. Have fun, you'll get the hang of it.
I Loved That Sauce It Was So Wonderful And The Texture Was Almost Like A Meatsauce. I Never Liked Marina Sauce Before Until I Tried This One Because All The Other Sauces Were Too Watery And Runny. I Let Several People Who Don't Even Like Marina Sauce Try It And They Loved It To. I Guess It Depends On The Size Of The Dates You Put In. My Dates Were Kind Of Small So I Actually Added One. The Garlic However Was Way Too Strong At 4 Cloves So Next Time I Will Cut That In Half. Cayanne Does Make A Difference Though So Before You Elimiate The Dates Altogether Try Adding The Cayanne And Reduce The Dates. The Zuccini For Me Was Hard To Eat. I Think It Was More Mental Than Anything. I Think I Just Missed Having Real Noodles.
