Recipe Box, Zoodle Primavera

This is a wonderful light spring dish that you can adjust to your own taste preferences

 

 

 

I paired favorite green vegetables

 

 

 

with spiralized zucchini noodles,

 

 

 

roasted Brussels sprouts,

 

 

caramelized sweet onions,

 

 

and tossed them all together in a skillet

 

 

Into a baking dish they go

 

 

A little sauce and cheese will add creaminess without a lot of calories, the amounts are up to you

 

 

 

you can control the calories***

 

 

 

I used about 1/4 cup sauce and 1-2 oz Parmesan cheese

 

 

 

This can be refrigerated, covered, before baking, if desired

 

***Skip the sauce and cheese if desired and simply season vegetables with salt and pepper, toss and serve

 

Zoodle Primavera

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

2 medium large zucchini, washed

2-3 cups fresh snap peas, trimmed

16-20 fresh asparagus spears, cooked to crisp tender* and cut into 1 inch pieces

20 brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half

1/2 sweet onion, sliced

olive oil

1/2 T butter

salt & pepper

shaved Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup light Alfredo sauce, optional

Put Brussels sprouts on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet.  Sprinkle with salt & pepper and drizzle with olive oil.  Roast at 400 for 30-40 minutes until edges are starting to char and sprouts are soft.  Set aside.

Spiralize zucchini and put in a colander.  Sprinkle with salt and let drain for 15 minutes.  Pat dry.

Meanwhile saute onion in butter and olive oil over medium low, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.  Add zoodles and peas to the pan, stir and cook for several more minutes until vegetables soften.  Add asparagus and stir.  Turn into a greased casserole dish and add sprouts.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add cheese and sauce if desired**

*snap woody ends off spears, rinse and wrap in clean kitchen towel.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes.  Remove and  unwrap spears to stop cooking.

**NOTE: a small amount of cheese and sauce goes a long way to add flavor and creaminess without a lot of calories

 

 

Serve as a side dish or a main dish, adding some grilled chicken for protein if desired

 

 

I was very happy with a slice of  bacon and a piece of crusty garlic bread  😋

Enjoy!

  4. Your photos and descriptions are so good. I think the only way someone could mess up one of your recipes is if they didn’t pay attention to the heat or timer!

    Love the combination of veggies for this recipe. Printing this one, I will serve it with a sprinkle of cheese for Jim but plain for me. Great for a summer side with grilled chicken, yum!

    I love the idea of substituting veggies for noodles. I like spaghetti squash, but I really need to try zucchini. The peak months for zucchini are quickly approaching, and we’ll be overrun! I can’t wait to try this!
