This week I’m sharing a delightful dish from The Forest Feast. I got it as a gift from my mama for my birthday and finally had a chance to use it. The first recipe I made from it was the Carrot and Zucchini Ribbon Pasta. Admittedly, I was a little intimidated by the ribbons of veggies. I don’t have a fancy peeler and had no idea how I was going to pull it off. But my, oh my, what a tasty recipe it turned out to be! Plus I just used a regular, ol’ peeler and it worked great! Check out the recipe below and then come back and let me know what you thought.
Carrot and Zucchini Ribbon Pasta
from The Forest Feast
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 carrots, peeled in ribbons
- 2 zucchini, peeled in ribbons
- salt and pepper to taste
- 8 oz dry fettuccine, cooked
- 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves, chopped
- 1 Tbsp butter
- fresh parmesan cheese, finely grated (optional)
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic, carrots, zucchini, salt and pepper for 5-6 minutes. Add the cooked fettuccine and thyme, and toss to combine. Place the butter on top, allow to melt, and toss until veggies and pasta are coated. Serve hot with a sprinkling of finely grated parmesan cheese.
Have a great day, friends!
