ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITH ORGANIC SPINACH AND CHEESE TORTELLINI AND TOMATO SAUCE
Spiralizing vegetables seems to be the latest in making vegetables fun, healthy and delicious.
My first experience with spiralizing was only recently after an amazing gift of a spiralizer for Christmas!
My first attempt was so simple and delicious that I cannot wait to try more vegetables.
Zucchini is a great place to start for the newcomer.
Keep it simple!
1 zucchini spiralized with the small spaghetti blade. I left the skin on as this was an organic squash)
1 splash of olive oil in a medium frying pan.
a sprinkle of dried oregano
red pepper flakes (optional)
salt and pepper
Cooked tortellini, organic in a warm tomato sauce of your choice
Heat the oil in the pan to coat. Add zucchini noodles and cook on medium heat tossing occasionally
for 3-5 minutes.
Add oregano, salt and pepper,
and red pepper if using.
Noodles should be warm, but still crunchy.
Divide zoodles between two bowls, spoon tortellini and sauce on top.
It is that easy!
Delicious and filling!
This can easily be adapted to many different toppings depending on your tastes.
