I tried my hand at Zucchini Chips and I gotta say, every time I made them I burned them…no matter how much I adjusted the thickness. But I still wanted to figure out a way to cook with Zucchini as they’re super low in calories, filled with folate, potassium and vitamin A. I don’t eat bananas so I gotta get that potassium elsewhere! Plus they’re pretty tasty. Zucchini’s are another food that I had never tried before this year! Thanks to this blog I’ve had the opportunity to try so many foods I had not yet tried.
When my sister and her hubby landed in Chicago for Christmas we had to make a quick stop so they could get a white elephant gift for our family Christmas party. What did they pick up? A Veggetti! Oooooo yaaaaaa! We got it all ready to go and headed to the car. The next day when we were wrapping up gifts, my sister realized we didn’t have the Veggetti. It wasn’t in my car, wasn’t in my parents house (luckily my mom got extras for the white elephant exchange). When I got home, lo and behold! There was the Veggetti sitting on my coffee table! YAY! It was quite funny because at my office white elephant party we also had a Veggetti going around and it was THE item to get. We all wanted it! I was going to buy one but thanks to my sister and her hubby I didn’t need to! (she wasn’t too pleased, she wants one now too!)
So I put my Veggetti to good use! It’s pretty easy to use, not super terrible to clean (unlike a cheese grater) and works well to create some tasty Zucchini Noodles!!!
So I whipped up a SUPER tasty creamy zucchini “pasta” dish filled with veggies, chicken sausauge and so much cheese. I just love cheese.
