Zucchini Pasta – The Healthy Pasta

Love pasta but looking for something healthier?  If you haven’t heard of zucchini pasta, tonight is your lucky night!

Instead of using traditional pasta you can use a ZUCCHINI!  That’s right.  All you need is a spiral slicer (available for around $30) and you can make any veggie into pasta-like strands.  Just check out the delicious dish I made for dinner last night.

Those pasta-like strands are just zucchini!  That’s it!  It’s so simple.  I topped the zucchini “pasta” with avocado, sundried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, nutrition yeast, ground black pepper, a pinch of sea salt and for a dressing I drizzled Braggs liquid aminos on top.  You can make so many dressings for this.  You could use a fresh marinara sauce.  You could use a balsamic vinegar and mustard combo.  You could simply squeeze oranges over top and drizzle with fresh organic virgin olive oil.  The pastabilities are endless 😉

If you don’t have a spiral slicer you can find one on amazon.com – this is the one that I purchased years ago and it has stood the test of time:  SPIRAL SLICER

You can spiral slice apples, cucumber, carrots, squash, daikon…anything you can think of!  It’s a good investment for your kitchen and your health and helps add variety to veggie meal creation!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and here’s to a healthy, happy week ahead!
