1. This has been my "go to" meal this spring. I've been buying zucchini like crazy and sauteing it with cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, black olives, and sometimes asparagus and a dash of seasoning.
2. I make the zucchini into pasta shape with the spiral contraption called the Veggetti. I received it for Christmas but just started to use it this spring and I love it. It's easy to use and not a pain at all to clean out. And because of the lid (shown on the side there), it makes it really safe to use and you can utilize almost all of your zucchini or whatever veggie you want to use.
4. BUT WAIT!!! The Veggetti not only produces spaghetti shaped pasta, it also produces cork screw shaped pasta. I figured this out by accident. Every once in a while as I am spinning the zucchini to make the long pasta, a corkscrew shaped one would fall out of the end of the contraption. I figured if you spin the zucchini, it come out like spaghetti but if you push the zucchini through (with the help of the lid attachment that attached to the veggie) it would come out the bottom as corkscrew. But I've found that isn't always the case.
So, this brings me to my #5 of the Friday 5. If you have this tool, please share with me how you determine if you are making spaghetti shapes or corkscrew shapes with your veggies? What other veggies do you you with this tool? -M
