Several months ago, Collin at Hip2Save posted about eating zucchini in place of spaghetti. I was a bit skeptical at first, but since I’ve been getting a lot of zucchini from my farm share and I generally avoid wheat pasta, I decided to give it a try. I have to admit that I was wrong in my initial skepticism (and admitting that I’m wrong is not one of my strongest traits, as my husband will attest). This is absolutely delicious! This version of zucchini spaghetti is topped with a simple tomato sauce. It makes a satisfying meal, especially if you include a little meat in the sauce. While I love zucchini bread and chocolate zucchini cake, those recipes will now be competing with zucchini spaghetti when I get a few zucchinis from the farm.
Zucchini Spaghetti Price Breakdown
This meal costs $4.70 to make, or $1.18 per serving. That’s a great price for a hearty, naturally gluten-free pasta dinner!
