If you're thinking, "hey lady, why is your pasta green?!" I'll tell ya why... It's zucchini. That's right. Pasta made from nothing but Zucchini, fresh garlic, olive oil and a little salt and pepper to taste.
I saw this on doctor Oz yesterday and figured I'd give it a try. It's a great way to cut back on the carbs while still enjoying your favorite pasta dishes. It tastes fantastic and is actually good for you. Win and win.
The deets: take a potato peeler to a zucchini. Peel off strips of zucchini to create fettucini-like "pasta".
In a pan or wok, heat some olive oil over medium-high heat, add your garlic (I used 2 cloves for 1 zucchini) and swish it around.
Throw in your zucchini, salt and pepper to taste.
Stir the pasta continuously for 2 minutes or until the zucchini begins turning translucent.
Take out and serve right away along side your favorite pasta sauce and viola! So. Stinking. Yummy.
