This recipe is so easy! I sent away for this spiral slicer that makes zucchini noodles. It cost me under $4. Wonderful little kitchen gadget.
If you want to go ‘vegetarian’, you need enough good quick recipes under your belt. Along with my chili, potato and salad, I like variety. I have always loved eating lots of spaghetti, but wheat pasta didn’t love me back like zucchini noodles do.
‘Although government-supported dietary guidelines in Europe and the U.S.A advise individuals to eat adequate amounts of (whole) grain products per day, cereal grains contain “anti-nutrients,” such as wheat gluten and wheat lectin, that in humans can elicit dysfunction and disease [1 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov].’
I didn’t do well on wheat noodles or any other refined grain product. So, if you want to get off regular wheat or so called ‘no gluten’ pasta, this might just work for you as it does for me.
I got this ‘noodle maker’ on eBay®. I only buy off eBay whenever the price is right.
- I do shop around
- Why pay more than you have to?
- Walmart® is also a good place to shop and buy
Here’s how you make this tasty healthful dish…
- Make your noodles with one large or two small zucchini’s
- Cook in microwave for about a minute (or so) depending upon how much you make. I only use about two small zucchini’s to fill me up because I eat other things with it
- Pour your Italian sauce over
I use Hunt’s® Italian sauce with basil, garlic and oregano in an 8 oz. can, which is inexpensive and the right size for us. It is…
- All natural
- Non GMO
- Has a BPA can liner
- No artificial ingredients or preservatives
- Bon appetit!
