Ma's Personal Health Blog 16: Low carb 'fettucine'

| No Comments

   It's September, and the garden is bursting with zucchini, summer squash, peppers, eggplants, carrots, oregano, rosemary, thyme and basil, all crying out to be made into delicious Italian food. What's a poor gourmet to do?  Well, what I really enjoy is the amazing 'Spaghetti Indiano' sauce we create at the ashram, http://www.alandiashram.org/gurukula_blog/2011/10/spaghetti-indiano.html or the delicious pesto made from our basil. So instead of subjecting myself to a pasta carb load, I've been making raw zucchini fettuccine. First peel the zucchini. Discard the peel and then keep going with the peeler, creating fettucine-like strips. Put the strips in a bowl and sprinkle liberally with salt. Toss to mix in the salt, cover and leave for at least an hour. Rinse thoroughly in a colander to wash off the salt, pat dry with paper towels, toss in olive oil and there's your pasta. You could warm it gently but I usually have it a room temperature with hot spaghetti sauce. This is also a great way to use overgrown zucchini.
