Linguine with Light Alfredo and Zucchini Ribbons

I'm super happy anytime I can make a good meatless meal, and this one is definitely near the top of my list.  I love zucchini and alfredo, so combining the two make for a perfect meal in my house.  The texture of the zucchini adds a slightly crisp bite to each mouthful ... love.
Best dishes and yummy dreams!

Since I can't have Parmesan cheese I wonder if swiss cheese would be weird?
