I love vegetables, but it is difficult to find recipes that are fun and light. I had seen a salad of thin strip of squash and zucchini, and that’s where I got the idea of cutting them in thin strips, and serving them as tagliatelle. That was a good light substitution for real pasta… since I don’t eat pasta;-)
Ingredients for 2: 2 small zucchinis and 2 small yellow squash, 1 tbsp of butter, 1 tsp of fresh mint, salt and pepper to taste.
With a vegetable peeler, slice the zucchinis and the squash into thin long strips. Place them in the large round flexiform, top with the octogonal silpat and microwave for 2 minutes. Once the vegetables are cooked, turn the stove to medium heat, and place 1 tbsp of butter in a frying pan. When the butter is starting to sizzle, drop the vegetables, and quickly stir them. Season with salt and pepper and add the chopped mint and EAT! Yummy… it is so light….I highly recommend you try!
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
