Zucchini Ribbon Pasta (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Updated on March 8, 2015

Veggie Noodles: REAL Fast Food In 5!

Eat this Veggie Spaghetti 4 times a week and wear spaghetti straps by summer...or maybe a string bikini! This dish is only 60 calories a plate and is the fastest healthy dinner I have ever made. If you need to fool folks who don't love Veggies-just shave off the green skin and then make ribbons. It looks so much like pasta they won't know until their plates are clean...of course, that's IF you tell them! Zucchini ribbons are a blank canvas that you can put just about any sauce over since it has such a mild, pleasant taste: Tomato sauce, Lemon-basil-oil, cashew cream, garlic and olive oil. Paint this dish any flavor you like!

Make sauce ahead of time and heat up. You can use red, white or think up any sauce that tastes good to you. This is a blank canvas and the zucchini will showcase any concoction you can come up with.

Prep time: 5 min
Ready in: 5 min
Yields: 1

      I once had lasagna made with zuchinni as the noodles. It was so good! It would be cool if you added a little bit more info about how to make veggie non-meat balls from seeds, nuts or tofu. That sounds like it would be fun to try with the veggie noodles. :)
