Faux Pasta: Zucchini/Courgette and Tomato Sauce

Posted on

I received a spiralizer recently and decided to make some lightly steamed zucchini/courgette ‘noodles’.  These are sometimes called zoodles (zucchini + noodles), but I prefer the portmanteau fausta (faux + pasta) since that covers any vegetable I might use.  I used my basic tomato-based sauce to top.

I was pretty satisfied with the result, although I did have to pan-fry the fausta a bit to remove excess water before I added the sauce.  I served it with some of the ginger-orange carrots I made earlier.
