Zucchini Linguine with feta cheese

Zucchininudeln mit Ziegenkäse

Its zucchini time in our garden right now and since I always love to make seasonal recipes and use the fruit and veggies that are currently ripe and ready for my recipes I came up with this amazing low carb dish for you!

I am sure many of you have heard of zucchini noodles and you might think that you need to buy a special spiralizer for it. No need my friend. In this blogpost I will show you how easily you can make your own zucchini noodles just buy using your regular kitchen utensils.

Why I love vegetable pasta

I am always looking for ways to replace simple carbs like pasta with a better gluten free and low carb substitute. Making pasta out of vegetable is simply a genius invention and zucchinis are perfect for it. Using zucchini as your base you will be saving so many calories and carbs from a meal, but still get the full taste and pasta experience in my opinion. 

How to make Zucchini Linguine 

What you need to do first is wash your zucchini and dry them up. Then use a normal vegetable peeler and peel thin slices from the zucchini. Like this you will get your Linguine. 
Then you will need to boil them in hot water for just 3-4 minutes, so they wont get too soft. It really isn’t that much more work than making regular pasta. You will see! 🙂

Regarding the sauce for your zucchini linguine you can let your creativity run free. I used low fat cream cheese (which I put in after I took the photo – doesn’t look so pretty mixed up with the cream cheese) and then just threw some fun veggies in there. I topped it off with feta cheese dices. 

Zucchini Linguine with Feta

The recipe

  • 1 big zucchini
  • 40g feta cheese
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp low fat cream cheese
  • salt & pepper

With a vegetable peeler carefully peel thin slices off the zucchini. Boil them in salt water for 3 minutes and strain well. Put them back into the pot and mix in the cream cheese, salt and pepper. Cut the feta cheese into small dices and mix under the zucchini pasta. Put on a plate and decorate with small cherry tomatoes.

Enjoy! 🙂

Low Carb Filled Zucchini

 itemprop

Today I would like to share one of my favorite low carb recipes with you. Let’s make some low carb filled zucchini – perfect for your fitness diet! 

This is super easy and fast to make, doesn’t have a lot of calories and is perfect if you are on a low carb diet. I was even eating this while I was on my ketogenic diet. It will provide you with clean protein and good fiber through the zucchini.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like to fill zucchinis but you can also use sweet potatoes, pumpkin, peppers or whatever veggie comes to your mind. Lately I have been seeing those awesome round zucchinis. They look so cute and are the perfect size. 

What I also like about this recipe is that you really don’t need a lot of ingredients or time to make it. You literally just throw everything together in a bowl and fill the zucchinis with it. 

But lets jump into the recipe:
