Zesty Zucchini Ribbons, Artichokes & Mixed Beans With Wheat Fettuccine
I was on a rush Saturday lunch-time to get something quick, but healthy in front of my kids. This pasta came to be a savior as I decided to pull things from my fridge and start prepping while my pasta came to a boil. Not much thinking was involved, except to put the ingredients that were already in my fridge into an edible state.
Even though my beautiful picture shows the vegetables over pasta, I actually served it separate to my picky children. They don't like to see their food mixed together. I am being patient on how I serve their food as long as they are trying to eat their vegetables.
The outcome was delicious, hearty and beautiful! If you have never used a mandolin, or a vegetable peeler on slicing vegetables, it works great on zucchinis. They not only come out beautiful like ribbons, but they also have a silky-like texture like ribbons, which makes eating them so much more fun.
Overall I was happy with my creation and results. I also felt at peace that both of my girls ate their food and got rewarded with bubble bath play.
