I’m all about a good dose of cheesy creamy goodness & tomatoes atop my pasta. To make myself “feel” healthier, I recently started opting for veggie noodles as opposed to your traditional pasta noodles. (There was no way I was going to substitute the cream & cheese, y’all!) The taste and texture of Veggie Noodle Co’s zucchini spirals are totally different than your traditional noodles, but while you’re eating the dish you kind of forget for a second that you’re eating vegetables instead of actual pasta. For those of you with kiddos, zucchini noodles are a great way to get in that extra veggie come dinner time!

Okay…. now for the recipe!

 

Creamy Cajun Zucchini Noodle Pasta Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 box of Veggie Noodle Co. Zucchini Spirals
  • 1 box of cherry tomatoes. (I opted for both yellow & red for a pop of color!)
  • olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves - minced
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoons Cajun Season (I use Tony Chacheres Seasoning Creole)
  • 3 fresh springs of thyme
  • A handful of chopped basil

Instructions

  1. Slice the cherry tomatoes lengthwise. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast on 350 for half an hour.
  2. Melt butter in saucepan on low heat. Throw in the minced garlic. Cook for about 2-3 minutes. Next, pour in the heavy cream and 3/4 a cup of parmesan cheese. Toss in thyme, basil, cajun season and salt & pepper.
  3. Simmer for about 6 minutes.
  4. Pour over zucchini spirals and serve!
  5. (Optional) for cooked zucchini spirals, toss noodles in olive oil in a skillet over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes.

You can find these tasty noodles in carrot, zucchini, sweet potato and even beet spirals at H-E-B! What makes them so easy is the fact that you can both eat them cold & raw or heat them up for 3-4 minutes in the skillet to cook throughout. Plus, they taste great topped with my favorite creamy cajun pasta sauce!
