Have you ever thought that you can make your own, healthier version of pasta? I think, it is a great option for a change, when you are already bored with your cooking, also it is much healthier and it is so colourful and easy to prepare.
I have got a special tool called spiralizer which makes my root vegetables a pasta ! If you have none, you can try to use the simple vegetable peeler to make a stripes from it, however the spiralizer is much quicker and you got a perfect vegetable pasta in different shapes and sizes. Mine is power less , so I can use it wherever I can. You can use carrots, beets, potatoes, pumpkin, parsley, celery, sweet potato, aubergine and many more to make your own pasta! Try my option:
Get ready: (2 servings)
2 medium courgettes (spiralized)
1 mascarpone cheese
1 medium onion chopped
two handfuls of frozen peas
1tbs coconut oil
Basil Leaves (optional)
Prepare the courgette pasta and leave on the side. Preheat the sauce pan with coconut oil, throw the onion and fry for 3-5 minutes on medium heat until golden. Throw in the mascarpone cheese, let it melt for 4-6 minutes, yo may add 3-4 spoons of water if the mascarpone is too thick. Season well with salt and pepper and add frozen peas. Heat it for the next 4-6 minutes , try for taste, add more salt and pepper if needed. If the mixture gets too tick, add 20-40 ml of water , stir in and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Pasta: Throw in the courgette pasta into boiling water and boil for 2-3 minutes. Do not over cook . Keep it al dente.
