Gluten Free Zuchinni Noodles - Using a spiralizer to make gluten free noodles

No comments
So last week I decided to do something different with our meal.  We typically have a carb with our meal.  Usually some sort of rice or potato.  If we are having pasta, we usually struggle to get in a veggie.

So I decided to try something different from a spiralizer cook book we borrowed from the library. We made zuchinni noodles!  I knew it was risky with kids, but I know they love the green pea pasta from Costco.  So I thought to try and trick them with another veggie pasta.  


To be kid friendly, I peeled the skin, so the zucchini looked more like a noodle.  Then I used the noodle insert to create long twisty noodles.  I then heated up some oil with garlic and sauteed the noodles for a minute before adding the sauce to cook it more until el dante. I can tell you hiding the fact this was a vegetable did not work as well as the pea pasta, but the kids still liked it.  They knew it wasn't real pasta, but powered through it.  I made sure to have a tasty sauce with it, and served it with a veal parmesan.
