Zucchini Pasta

Seriously guys, I cant praise this stuff enough – it’s a game changer!
If you’ve read my Kitchen Essentials post amongst others, you’ll know how
deeply in love I am with The Spiralizer.
The dish I make the most with my Spiralizer is definitely Zucchini Pasta.
Like regular pasta, it’s so versatile and convenient to make. You can have it
so many different ways so it’s a dish that is hard to be bored of and you can
have some fun in the kitchen too trying out different sauces and other ingredients.

I benchmark my servings on about 1 medium zucchini per person which is ideal for upping your green intake every day.

You simply chop off each end of the zucchini and swirl it through the Spiralizer using either the thin or thicker noodle blade, depending on preference.
Place he zucchini in a pot of water and bring to the boil. Cook for only 3-5 minutes.
After straining, there is an optional choice to add the zucchini to a hot, greased pan and sauté for 1-2 minutes but you don’t have to.
Once cooked, leave to one side until your pasta sauce or whatever ingredients you’re using are ready.
Serve your zucchini pasta and its accompaniment as you would a regular pasta dish and enjoy a clean, green, wholesome meal.

Here are some of my absolute favourite ways to serve Zucchini Pasta;
