The New Home Economics

New use for zucchinis

Leave a comment

Well, I was warned.  But I really thought that 3 zucchini plants would be manageable.  WRONG.  I had zucchini for breakfast, lunch, and dinner one day this week.  I’ve made two zucchini cakes in the last week.  Tonight Adam came up with yet another creative way to use some up:

He made some homemade spaghetti, and also cut up zucchini into long noodle-like strips and threw it right in with the noodles.  It was tasty!

How to replace some of your noodles with zucchini:

1. Buy or make fatter noodles so you don’t have to kill yourself cutting the zucchini matchstick size.

2. Cut your zucchini into long thin noodle-like strips.

3. When you’re boiling your noodles, add the zucchini strips right in with them  (at the beginning for fresh noodles, about half-way through for dried/storebought noodles).

Voila, you’ve just reduced the carbs in your spaghetti dinner and used up some excess zucchini at the same time!
