I am so excited to share this simple recipe today! I love to put tomato or bolognese sauce over mixed vegetables, but I found a new way to enjoy it. Being that I had so much zucchini from my CSA farm share, I decided to try making zucchini pasta, instead of spaghetti squash.
I had given up when I bought a mandolin, and it was just too awkward and time consuming to use. I guess I bought the wrong kind, I don’t know. Anyway, it suddenly occurred to me that I could try using my peeler instead, and it worked like magic!
Mandolin = obstacle
Peeler = magic
Gotta love simplicity! My recipe is short and sweet today. Here it is:
I didn’t take a photo with the sauce on top, because we had company at the time, and I didn’t want to delay serving! The next time I make it, I will try to add a photo to this post.
I am continually amazed at how fresh ingredients can be transformed into yummy bites of deliciousness so easily! The magic is in the simplicity.
If only more people realized that preparing healthy food doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated. Of course, cooking does leave you with dirty dishes! That part, I wish there were a fairy godmother for. I don’t know many people who like to clean dishes, although it is so worth the time and effort when you realize how great the food makes you feel.
I bet this pasta would taste great loaded up with even more garlic and olive oil, or pesto sauce. Now I’m getting hungry.
Here’s to eating well this school year! And by the way, kids might really enjoy peeling the zucchini, and seeing it transform right in front of their own eyes! Cooking is a chemistry experiment, when you stop and think about it. Enjoy!
