Zucchini Pasta!

We received our Julienne Slicer in the mail yesterday.

In all the excitement created by the new kitchen gadget, we came up with this simple dish for dinner tonight. It turned out great.

Here is the basic idea:

  1. Use a Julienne Slicer to make noodles with Zucchini.
  2. Add warm pasta sauce.
  3. Garnish with Parmesan and a few pieces of Parsley.

Dinner is served!

Here are some photos of the prep:

In order to prepare the Zucchini noodles, chop the zucchini squashes into 2" pieces as shown below.

Stick the Zucchini piece onto the holder piece in the Julienne Slicer.
Using the Julienne Slicer, you can prepare different types of slices. Here is one way to slice the Zucchini. There is a level on the unit that let's you select how you want the vegetable sliced.
Behold the power of the Julienne Slicer! Zucchini noodles for your gastronomic experimentation :)
One thing I did not like about this Julienne Slicer is that the blades get clogged up with chopped-up veggies quite quickly. In the case of the Zucchini noodle prep process, I had to quickly rinse off the blade assembly after every two pieces of Zucchini. But given how long it will take to do it manually, I suppose I shouldn't complain too much.

By the way, if you like to have a nice pile of Julienned oninions on your burgers, the Julienne Slicer is super useful and it is really tear-free!

Bon appetit!
