This is another one of those “Oh shit it’s Wednesday night and I just got home from work and have no idea what to feed myself / those I love” dinners. It’s super easy to whip up, it’s healthy (Whole30/Paleo compliant) and delicious.
Zucchini (you’re going to zoodle this so there’s no right amount. I usually say 1 medium zucchini per person)
Sausage (about 1.5-2 sausages per person)
Sun Dried Tomato (chopped finely, about 1/3 cup or more if you’d like)
Garlic (2-3 cloves, chopped finely)
Salt/Pepper to taste
Ghee (or butter/oil)
First things first, let’s talk Zoodles. If anyone isn’t familiar with the Zoodle, it’s a “noodle” that’s actually just spiralized Zucchini. It’ll change the way you eat veggies forever. It’s great for kids, picky eaters, pasta lovers trying to shed some pounds, etc.
Zoodling is quick and easy- just use a Spiralizer and twist up enough Zoodles for your crew. You’re going to cook these last since the zucchini will be thin and will cook very quickly.
First, add ghee or oil to your pan, and throw in the sausage. I used a pre-cooked chicken sausage, but you can use spicy italian or something of the sort. Just cook it until it’s cooked/warmed through (only about a minute if it’s pre-cooked), then add in your chopped garlic and stir for about a minute.
Throw in the sun dried tomato, cook for another minute or two, until the tomato is soft. Now, throw in your Zoodles. Make sure to stir the sausage mixture to the top, so it doesn’t burn under your Zoodles. Depending how much zucchini you have- just cook it for a few minutes, until the zucchini is soft. Be careful not to overcook- you want the zucchini to be firm, like pasta.
Add salt/pepper to your taste preference- and there you have it. A delicious, healthy meal ready in a matter of minutes. The best part is that you can eat a literal tub full of zoodles without any guilt- booyah!
