Squash Pasta!

When in NYC, I went to a live taping of a culinary show.  it was fun, exciting, and I learned so much.  One of the dishes they made was “Zucchini Pasta.”  I have been playing with it and came up with my own version.  My husband and I love it! Sometimes we’ll eat it as is, and other times we’ll add a grilled pork chop or piece of chicken.  I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we do!

Barb’s Squash Pasta

3 medium sized zucchini and 2 yellow squash

Olive oil

Spices: garlic powder, salt, pepper, Italian Seasoning

Marinara Sauce

Freshly grated Parmesan

Wash and dry squash and zucchini.  Using a vegetable peeler, grate it until you get to the seed.  Toss in a large bowl with 2 T of olive oil.

Heat a wok or large frying pan.  Spray with nonstick cooking spray.  Add grated veggies and preferred spices.  Cook until tender, but still somewhat crunchy.  Meanwhile, heat marinara sauce.  Serve squash pasta with sauce and sprinkle cheese on top!

2 generous servings; 5o calories for the squash, 120 for the olive oil, and calories for marinara sauce depends on the brand…

  1. I will definitely make this one as I am always looking for alternatives to traditional wheat pasta. I’m gluten-free and enjoy rice pasta but I like to try different things.
    Have you tried spaghetti squash? I wrote about it on my blog. It is very, very good too.
    Thanks for linking with us at No Ordinary Blog Hop. Keep it up.
    Every blessing, Kelly

  2. That looks amazing. How fun a cooking show? I have always wanted to go on one. They have them all the time in Arizona, I will have to give it a try. I’m a new follower.

  3. […] I was missing a few ingredients. So I just tweaked it, and instead of buns, I had it on my favorite Squash Pasta.  Let me tell you–I’m going to make this again, and again and again! I hope you enjoy […]
