pizza pasta

One of my favorites when I’m craving pizza! This combination of pizza fixins’ and veggie “pasta” lightens the glycemic load of everybody’s favourite “junk food” fix. If calories aren’t a consideration, top with some shredded mozzarella and microwave for 30 seconds to get the full-on pizza “experience.”

Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchinis

  • 2 large carrots

  • 2 Italian chicken turkey sausages

  • 14-oz. jar pizza sauce

  • 1 cup large yellow onion, diced

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms

  • 1 bell pepper, diced

  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tsp olive oil

Directions

  • Make “pasta” strands out of the zucchini with your Veggetti, or using blade 2 on the Paderno. Heat or cook as you prefer. I like to blanche the noodles for 1-2 minutes then sprinkle with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Cut the sausages into 1-inch pieces and sauté in a medium skillet. Set aside.
  • Add the olive oil to a large saucepan.
  • Cook the onions until they are translucent, then add the diced pepper and sliced mushrooms. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Mix in the cooked sausage pieces.
  • Add the pizza sauce and stir over medium heat for another 5 minutes.
  • Pour over the “pasta” and garnish with sliced olives.
