Creamy zucchini pasta - trick the kids into eating vege's
Love creamy pastas but not the calories? Here is a recipe that doesn't scrimp on taste and offers the full flavoured effect of a delicious creamy pasta. It's simple to make, tastes great and is also a sneaky way to get some vegetables into your kids diet. If your child is alarmed by anything green in their plate, I will tell you how to make this pasta with "no green bits" by adding one step to it.
Boil the pasta of your choice as you normally would. I use penne but it also works well with spirals. Just prior to the pasta being al dente, scoop them out with a slotted spoon and transfer them into the pan with the zucchini sauce. Toss for another minute or until it is well combined and the penne do their last minute of cooking in the sauce. If it's a little dry you can add some more milk or use some of the pasta water to make it more moist.
All that is left to do is plate up and top with grated parmesan.
This amount of zucchini sauce is enough for 2-4 pasta servings, depending on size.
