I have such awesome friends! My friend Stacie from work recently made some homemade pesto. Naturally my interest is piqued. She is amazing and said she would bring me some. Then of course my imagination and creativity backed up. What was I going to make with this? It sat in the fridge for several days. And she kept asking me if I had used it. I wanted it to be perfect, though.
Sitting at the market one Saturday, I had tables full of zucchini baked goods. I had mini bundt zucchini coffee cakes and chocolate zucchini bread and zucchini pie and regular zucchini bread. One of my vending friends had given me leftover zucchini the market before. I had used two zucchini, but still had two more at home. A light bulb went off. Years ago someone had given me a vegetti. Why not use that to make some zoodles (zucchini noodles)? Surprisingly, this was my first time making vegetable noodles or in using the apparatus.
My husband is awesome, when we got home, I got to cubing sweet potatoes and cooking sausage, while he used the vegetti on not only zucchini, but some carrots. They were so beautiful and fresh looking.
Toss these with some pesto and sausage, so GOOD!
