Spiralize Your Way to Easy, Healthy Dinners!

Our new favorite dinner was inspired by my new favorite kitchen tool – the spiralizer. I don’t know how it took me so long to finally break this baby in – it’s amazing!


I felt like pasta (let’s be honest, I always want pasta!) Who’s with me? I see those hands!! I give you pasta with a veggie flair. I swear you won’t know the difference.


I like to start off this meal by making my favourite sauce for pasta – pesto! This week, I bought some fresh Parmigiano and chopped down what was left of my basil to make homemade pesto

In a small processor, I threw in:

  • about 4 cups basil
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmigiano
  • 1/2 cup of good EVOO
  • some salt

Presto, you have pesto!


Next was my pasta. I took a few zucchinis to my spiralizer and was amazed at what came out. I threw some pesto in a pan with my zucchini and heated it all up. Throw in some frozen meatballs for some protein and you’ve got a gourmet dinner in no time. It’s THAT easy folks! 


Yours in good food and good health!
