I love eating out so when I am cooking at home I try to eat as heathily as I possibly can. That means lots of vegetables and hardly any processed food.
Some of you may have seen the commercial for the "vegetti" maker. It's a simple cone which shreds zucchini (courgettes) into spaghetti-like strips. It really does work, so this fits right in with my healthy eating tools. The zucchini is so tender you can even eat it raw!
Today I'm feeling more traditional so I'm cooking a tomato sauce. You can open your favorite jar, but I like to cook down low sodium V8 juice and add my own herbs, garlic and sundried tomatoes. It only takes a few minutes to do this - just make sure it is slightly thicker than you normally want it.
Add the zucchini pasta and cook for just a few minutes. The moisture from the zucchini will thin the sauce. Add a few sprinkles of you favorite grated cheese if you like, and voila! A super healthy meal in minutes!
