Zoodles with Fresh Smokey Sausage Tomato Sauce

Looking for a quick an healthy family friendly dinner recipe? Well, I've got just the thing....

Zoodles with Fresh Smokey Sausage Tomato Sauce!

I whipped up this simple yet delicious meal in just minutes last night.  Besides tasting amazing, the kids loved it and it totally satisfied my pasta craving without any grains.  So give it a try and let me know what you think!

Zoodles with Fresh Smokey Sausage Tomato Sauce

Ingredients:

2 medium - large Zucchinis
8-10 Roma Tomatoes
4-6 Green Onions
1 Celery stalk
Handful of fresh herbs - chopped (I used Basil, Thyme, Oregano & Parsley)
2 Cooked Smoked Sausages - chopped ( this is optional as this dish would be great with or without meat)
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
Garlic Powder

Instructions:

In order to make the zucchini pasta you will need a Spiralizer.  I got a fabulous one from Costco.ca from Paderno for about $40.  Or you could borrow one from a friend too!  Using the blade with the smallest holes, spiralize those zukes until you've got a big bowl of zoodles and set them aside.

Dice your tomatoes, celery, herbs  and onions and toss in a pan with a good glug of olive oil and add  garlic, salt & pepper to taste.  Cook your veggies over medium heat until the tomatoes get good and saucy and your onions and celery are softened.  Turn off your sauce and set aside for a couple minutes.


In a separate pan, add all those awesome zoodles with a couple good glugs of olive oil and some more garlic, salt & pepper to taste.  Cook the zoodles on medium heat, stirring frequently, until they start to wilt and get the consistency of noodles.


Put your sauce back on and add your cooked sausage if you are using it and reheat the sauce until your meat is warmed up.

And that's it! Use tongs to serve up your zoodles and top with a spoonful of your fresh tomato sauce! This meal served 2 adults and 2 kids without any left overs.  Mainly because everyone loved it!  But you could easily double the recipe for larger meals.

Have you tried zoodles yet?  What did you think?
