About to toss the zucchini “noodles” into the boiling water

I made this the other day, took photos of it for my mom, shared it on Instagram last second and immediately got tons of people asking me how I made this, what recipe I used, if it was hard, and did it taste nice. So I thought I should probably toss it up onto the blog πŸ˜‰
First off, it’s not hard. It is so simple and even less time consuming than making normal pasta. Secondly, it is so yummy. The “pasta” stays in thick noodles that you can twirl around yourΒ fork and while having a slight green tint to them are so similar to real pasta noodles you could probably even make kids (maybe even the occasional husband!) eat it if you didn’t tell them what it was made from πŸ˜›

So to start this “wonder dish” you start by making a bolognaize sauce. This link is the one I used and it’s incredible! (I threw a few mushrooms) Then while that’s cooking I peel the skin off the zuchinni and then peel the zucchini lengthwise so that I end up with a core that is the seeds. You don’t want seeds in your pasta because that will make it fall apart. Then you just boil it for a minute until it’s soft and then toss it to dry(ish)! It was awesome awesome Awesome πŸ™‚
btw, Don’t try to “wring dry” the pasta in a towel because that will make it squish and that is no good.

Mmm, zucchini Bolognese pasta :)
