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.
