This recipe is more about a unique kitchen tool versus the actual recipe. My fridge was full of leftover zucchini from these cookies and my stomach needed a break from desserts. I had just made these turkey meatballs and needed some pasta to eat them with. I had heard of a julienne peeler once or twice before but didn’t really know what it was. But I was determined to find one! Ventured over to Target but they only had one in a three pack with other types of peelers…which I already had or didn’t need. Thank goodness for Ace Hardware’s kitchen section (random, I know).
My sister-in-law, Amy, is very creative in the kitchen. She always makes great and healthy meals whenever I visit. Whether it’s breakfast tacos, mediterranean tuna salad or this pasta dish, I know I will never go hungry in her house. This recipe is very versatile so just throw in whatever nut butter and veggies you have in your fridge.
I’ve always wanted to make pasta from scratch…so this was a baby step into the pasta making world. I hope to make pasta dough from scratch by the end of the year! This is surprisingly really easy and tasted so simple and delicious. As you can tell, I adore butternut squash and use it all the time in the winter months.
This recipe is one of my favorite winter time comfort foods. I decided to add some kale to it this year to balance out the cheese and add some color. The rosemary is what makes this recipe to me however if you are not a fan, feel free to omit it.
