Recently, I bought a vegetable spiral slicer and have been spiraling as many veggies as I can get my hands on. I use this slicer and it works great. So far my favorite type of veggie “noodle” is zucchini. Their neutral flavor is great for a wide variety of sauces and toppings, and their texture is truly reminiscent of a real noodle. After baking them with standard tomato and pesto sauce, I began scouring the internet for another option. I came across Pinch of Yum’s recipe for Creamy Cauliflower Sauce and knew it was the perfect match for my veggie noodles.
The cauliflower sauce is rich and flavorful. If you aren’t a fan of cauliflower, it honestly doesn’t taste like it at all. Instead, the flavor of garlic and parmesan cheese shine through to create an amazing substitute for alfredo sauce. If you don’t have a noodle slicer, you can make this dish with standard cut zucchini. Spaghetti squash would also work well. I added tomatoes and capers for another layer of flavor. If you’re a meat eater, you could easily add chicken or meatballs. Yum!
