Zucchini Veggetti with Sausage

Zucchini Veggetti - WOW!
So a few weeks ago I read about the "Veggetti", the simple kitchen tool that can turn veggies like squash and carrots into spaghetti like strands.  For a mere $15 I had to buy it and try it.  Result:  it is AMAZING!!!   Literally took me about 30 seconds to turn my large raw zucchini into a plate of veggie-spaghetti; I love this thing!!!  I really don't think I'll be mourning pasta anymore, as this is so easy, and so fast!   And it's dishwasher safe on the top rack.  Above is a pic of my very first go round with the Veggetti!

Ok, so day 1 with the Veggetti I was ready to go all out and have a full on filling yummy "pasta" dish:  Turkey Sausage with Marinara topped with Parmesan cheese.  Delicious!

Here were my ingredients:

Zucchini Veggetti, Marinara and Turkey Sausage

1 packed cup of raw Zucchini Veggetti
1/2 cup Organic No Salt Added Marinara
1/4 cup cooked Turkey Sausage, diced

I added all three ingredients into a large bowl, along with 2 Tbsp water and heated in the microwave for 1 minute; stirred it and did another minute.   That is it!

I plated it and added 1 Tbsp of Parmesan Cheese and dug in!

I cannot think of an easier way to cut carbs or calories, or to go gluten free yet still provide a delicious and filling meal so fast!  You can add endless proteins and veggies to this dish.  I cannot wait to try all my favorite pasta dishes using this thing (Pesto, Olive Oil/ Garlic, Thai Peanut, Creamy Chicken and Mushroom, the list is endless!)  And I'm eager to try it out using Carrots and Yellow Squash too.  Stay tuned!
