Are you addicted to pasta? Will you eat any shape or size and even everyday? Have you ever considered swapping your regular pasta for veggies?
Some might think I’m crazy, but pasta made from vegetables is absolutely delicious and extremely health!
There are a couple different methods to achieve vegetable pasta noodles:
1. Roasted spaghetti squash – spaghetti squash naturally forms strands when cooked that resemble spaghetti noodles. Simply roast the squash for 30-45 minutes in a 350 degree oven. When it’s tender simply scrap with a fork to form the spaghetti strands. Top with your favourite pasta fixings.
2. Zucchini – zucchini makes a great alternative to spaghetti or fettuccine noodles. All you need is a vegetable peeler or julienne vegetable peeler. Simply use either peeler to transform the zucchini into ribbons (fettuccine) or thin julienne strips (spaghetti). If using a regular style vegetable peeler you can run a knife through the large ribbons to form julienne strips. Simply take your zucchini ribbons/julienne strips and steam for a couple minutes to soften, then top with your favourite pasta fixings.
Remember to eat 7-10 servings of vegetables a day. Vegetable pasta is a fun and easy way to help achieve these numbers.
