Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchinis

  • 1 large carrot

  • 3 oz. goat cheese, crumbled

  • 2 roasted red peppers, drained and chopped

  • 1/3 cup toasted, chopped walnuts

  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced thinly

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 2 Tbsp. tomato paste

  • 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme, chopped

  • ¼ onion (chopped)

  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes

  • ½-1 cup water as necessary

Directions

  • Make “pasta” strands out of the zucchini and carrots with your Veggetti. Heat or cook as you prefer.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Sauté the onion and garlic until they are soft.
  • Stir in the chopped red peppers and tomato paste. Cook for 2-4 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
  • Pour the cooked mixture into a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
  • Return the liquid to the skillet and add the thyme and red pepper flakes.
  • Cook over medium heat for about a minute to blend flavors.
  • Add the “pasta” to the liquid and stir until the sauce coats the pasta. If it’s too thick, add water, a little at a time, until the sauce is the consistency you want.
  • Stir in the goat cheese and walnuts.
  • Serve hot.
