Zucchini, Sweet Potato and Spaghetti
Amy and Hugh gave us a huge zucchini fresh from their garden so I was excited to put it to use today. What to make, what to make? I wanted to do something different. I surveyed my ingredients and came up with this pasta dish. It was inspired from this website, but I took a totally different spin.
My tomato sauce ingredients:
1 whole tomato
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
I blended all that together in a food processor and set it aside while the spaghetti cooked.
In the meantime, I shredded the sweet potato and 1/4 of the zucchini (it was a really big zucchini) in my KitchenAid.
Sauted the veggies in skillet over medium heat with vegetable broth, not oil.
When everything was ready, I just mixed the sauce, veggies, and pasta all together and served!
And it was quite satisfactory for everyone in the household :)
