Have you been doing your best to stay away from pasta and other processed grains? Do you miss them? I do too. Of course, I indulge every once in a while with the real thing but I love to experiment with pasta alternatives.  This dish is a tangy experiment gone really well. Not to mention, one cup of cooked zucchini has over a quarter of your daily manganese! What’s manganese and why should I have it in my diet? It’s a vital mineral that aids in digestion, bone health, and brain function.

I shaved the zucchini into large linguini-type strips with a handheld peeler. I quickly blanched the zucchini strips and dressed them with a champagne vinegar and lemon dressing. Yum!

    whaaa?! I’m very intrigued… garlic, lemon and zucchini, though. I can’t see how it could possibly be bad. I’m curious what kind of protein would go with this…
