While I’m not a fan of endlessly adding kitchen gadgets to our extremely small kitchen, there are the occasional ones that seem worth it.
The spiralizer is one of those. After a friend lent us hers to help us dispatch with a few too many zucchinis we were hooked. I picked one up at Vincenzo’s a few days later and haven’t looked back (of course they’re easy to find on amazon.com and amazon.ca as well).
Since we tend to eat pasta about once a week we’ve made the switch for the summer from regular pasta to long strands of zucchini, stir-fried and tossed with a simple sauce, pesto, or herbs. Tip: if your zucchini is quite large and watery wrap the spiral slices in cheese cloth and squeeze out the excess moisture!
The full recipe is shared on the Bailey’s Local Foods blog, but really you just need a spiralizer and your favorite pasta toppings!
