For all you amateurs out there, like me, here’s a simple tutorial on how to make a Zucchini Alfredo “pasta” that your kids (read kids AND HUSBAND) will actually eat.
We cut out eating pasta regularly a long time ago & we aren’t over it yet. I mean we are over the belly bloat and feeling tired/sick after eating it, but we aren’t over the simplicity of the meal. Then along came this beautiful idea…
|Start with 1-2 Zucchini & 1 jar of sauce (any will do).
|Peel it if you want to. I mostly peel it, but leave some to skin to hang on to.
|Compost the peels, or trash them, don’t run them down the garbage disposal.
|I use the Swissmar Borner V-1001 V-Slicer Plus Mandoline
slicer- but you can cut the zucchini with a knife any way you choose. Sometimes we do cubes, just because. I like strips the best.
|Let it cook down a little while you snap pictures and check your Instagram
|Pour on the sauce
|Stir some more and cook until the sauce is warmed
|Serve to your child/children and try not to freak when they like it- then they would know it’s kinda sorta healthy!
