Zucchini Pasta

I was feeling like pasta today. Although I do eat pasta sometimes, I cannot do it too often or I feel sluggish and bloated. That’s the case with most flours in general. In moderation, most definitely. You will occasionally find me eating pizza, a cupcake, or a cookie. But rarely in my own home. When I make food for myself I use the alternatives that I find the healthiest and that will leave me feeling the best and most energized. So I find ways to curb my cravings with all sorts of other fun foods. Today, I made raw zucchini pasta. And it totally worked. What I like most about spaghetti is the long strands of food lathered in tomato sauce that I slurp up. (Sometimes pesto). And this recipe does just that without the heaviness of processed flours.

Ingredients:

  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce
  • 5 olives chopped
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast

Steps:

  • with a Spirilizer make the zucchini into pasta 
  • top with all other ingredients
  • slurp it up and love it up!!

I’ve heard of people making the pasta with a vegetable peeler. I’ve never tried it so I cannot testify to how awesome it is.

I bought my Spirilizer here   http://www.amazon.com/Paderno-World-Cuisine-A4982799-Tri-Blade/dp/B0007Y9WHQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1408220735&sr=1-1&keywords=spiralizer

 It’s a cheap one, and it does exactly what I need it to and I love it. I use it for carrots and squash and all kinds of other foods. It really changes the way you eat vegetables!!
