Peeps, I need pasta sometimes. Pasta is LIFE. However, I will do a HARD. PASS. on the super high carb wheat based noodles that literally make me feel nauseous and sick thirty minutes after eating them, and then an HOUR LATER I feel like I am starving again and would eat my own arm. (Hellooooo blood sugar crash, am I right?!) This is because they are high in calories and very low in nutrients or fiber. So. I. Zoodle. I have had a fancy spiralizer for a couple of years, but I never used it. Enter the $10 handheld spiralizer from the grocery store and I have used it every day! So I have gone crazy on the pasta recipes. This took me TEN MINUTES from prep to table!!!! .
1. I warmed up an organic vegan pasta sauce on the stove (Muir Glen). .
2. I tossed some vegan Field Roast apple smoked meatless sausages in a pan until golden brown, then added them to the sauce and set the heat to low. .
3. Threw a few mushrooms in the same sauté pan, and while they cooked I spiralized the zucchini into a pasta bowl. .
4. When mushrooms were done I tossed that into the sauce as well, dumped it into the bowl with the zukes and sprinkled some vegan parmesan on top. .
This is SO EASY, and you will feel ENERGIZED after eating it instead of wanting a nap. Enjoy, kids. I'm gonna go plant my face in this zuke pasta now !!!
