Zucchini Squash Ribbons with Bolognese Sauce

Sometimes cooking can get tedious.  Since I tend to resort to one of three different go-to meals and pork chops, ground beef scramble, and roasted chicken, it can get old pretty quickly.  So, I recently purchased a Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer after seeing it on a paleo cooking blog to get creative in the kitchen again.

The slicer comes with three different attachments so you can slice big “noodles” (a la curly fries), small noodles, and thin slices like the picture above.   Check out this video for a demonstration of each attachment.   Since the weather has occasionally felt like autumn, I decided to try out variation of Marcus’ winter squash dish.

I sliced 5-6 medium squashes/zucchinis and sautéed them in butter over medium low heat until they were “al dente.”  I then added cooked mild italian sausage to marinara sauce and poured it over the veggies.  Next time around, I’ll probably add garlic and more spices to the veggies, but satisfied my comfort food craving and added variety to the menu.  Here was the end result:

I later tried the large noodle slicer on a sweet potato and apple and fried them on high heat in coconut oil.  It made for a delicious treat, especially with some cinnamon sprinkled on top.  The best thing about this slicer is how easy it is to clean unlike many other cooking gadgets!

    […] For a long time I was always using spaghetti squash as my pasta substitute. It doesn’t have a whole lot of flavor, so it really takes on the flavor of whatever you add to it. For me the only downside was that it still retaines a little crunchyness that you don’t get with pasta, so the texture is off. So recently I decided to try something different with zucchini squash, using this great spiralizing tool that was given to us as a gift. Now this isn’t an original idea, Ruth posted her own version of this here. […]
