I have absolutely been LOVING using my spiral vegetable slicer. I fully admit that I feel a little like I’m playing when I make a batch of “noodles”. It makes me feel a little like a kid…and that is fine with me! I have been making lots of simple lunches with it and I really love making zucchini pasta. In fact, I have switched from using gluten-free pasta and now primarily use zucchini pasta. It’s great because it really ups my vegetable intake, which is important to me!  I had some leftover meatballs from last night and wanted to make something quick and easy for lunch, so I decided that I would make some zucchini pasta and top it with some kind of homemade Alfredo sauce and created this garlic parmesan sauce.

A simple sauce

The sauce that I created was super simple! It took very little time, but is so incredibly tasty! It was truly creamy, cheesy goodness in a pan! Rich, decadent and so incredibly delicious! It was a very satisfying meal, and when you are living a luscious life, it is important to eat food that tastes good and makes you feel good. I know what ingredients I am using when I make this, and I can add as many or as few fresh veggies as I want!

This is perfect with pasta of any kind. But I chose to fix some zucchini pasta and then I sauteed it in butter and garlic along with some mushrooms and onions to give me even more vegetable goodness. I love to pair this with a nice, fresh Greek salad and some fresh berries topped with some homemade whipped cream for a great, produce a rich meal that is really satisfying.

And I’m happy to say that this recipe is both gluten-free and grain-free.
