Love pasta but have trouble with portion sizes? Why not try this great alternative, zucchini pasta!
1) Chop ends off zucchini and discard.
2) Using a peeler (Asian style peeler used for green papaya/mango salad is best), peel the zucchini full length as much as you possibly can to make zucchini ribbons or strings and add to a large heat proof bowl
3) Once all zucchini has been peeled and added to the bowl, microwave or blanch by pouring boiling water on top blanch for one minute
4) Drain zucchini and serve as you would pasta (eg. With mince bolognaise on top)
