A couple months ago I was visiting my family in Arizona and one evening we were watching some tv and I saw this really cool contraption that turned veggies into noodles. Since then I’ve really wanted to try the recipes that substitute veggies like zucchini for pasta.
I found this recipe over at Little Miss Momma and with only 3 ingredients it was right up my alley. It turned out really yummy. I tried to get away with just making this for dinner, but it’s probably best as a side dish unless you make a lot.
3 ingredient Zucchini Noodles:
-1/4 cup goat cheese
-4oz sun dried tomatoes
salt/pepper to taste
1/4 tsp cayenne (I would do less if you’re serving to kids)
- Begin by cutting the zucchini into noodles, I used a mandolin and it was super easy. Ashley also has a cool tool.
-Heat the zucchini in a skillet for 3 minutes over medium heat.
-Chop the sun-dried tomatoes a bit into smaller pieces
-Add cheese and tomatoes (and salt/pepper and cayenne if you want)
-Cook until the ‘noodles’ are the tenderness you like.
Have you ever tried using veggies as noodles? Zucchini or spaghetti squash or something else?
