How’s everyone doing? Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes in the entire world: Zucchetti Bolognese, made with one of the brand new and all natural Knorr-mixes! This saves me lots of time, because all the necessary herbs are already in this little bag of theirs.
Zucchetti isn’t pasta, but it’s actually spaghetti made with zucchini! I love my pasta of course, but when I’m in need of something a bit lighter this is exactly what I’ll prepare. Its taste is very similar, but it’s veg only and therefore very healthy. So, about a week ago I was invited by Knorr to taste their new mixes. At first I was a bit hesitant, because everyone knows that instant mixes contain lots of additives. This one was a bit different though, because they only contain natural ingredients. Happy me! After the event I got to take a few mixes home to try them out and I absolutely loved them. So why not make a recipe of it? It’s super quick and easy! Check it out.
Grocery List (for 2):
2 fresh tomatoes
2 garlic cloves
1-3 canned sardines (on oil)
1 Knorr Spaghetti Bolognese Mix (they are called: Natuurlijk Lekker)
A few drops of lemon
You also need: a Spirelli
Recipe: Zucchetti Bolognese (for 2)
- Remove the skin of the onion & the garlic cloves, smash the garlic with a knife and cut it into tiny pieces. Then cut the onion and chop up the leek.
- Put some olive oil in a big frying pan and add the garlic. Also add 1-3 (depending on how much you like them) sardines. Let the sardines sort of ‘melt’ into the olive oil. Make sure you cook it on very low heat, because it burns easily. After your kitchen is filled with a lovely Italian scent, you can add the onion as well ;-).
- Put a little bit of water in the pan and add the Knorr Spaghetti mix. Make sure you don’t forget to stir and let it boil for about five minutes. Now I like to add some real tomatoes, so what I do is I cut them up into tiny chunks and I add them to the mixture.
- Use a spirelli to make strings of zucchini. I got mine here. Some people boil their zucchetti or eat it raw, I like to cook it together with the sauce so all the flavors can really sink into the zucchetti (about 4-7 minutes).
- At the end you can add the leek, so its crunchy texture still remains.
- You can also add a bit of avocado on the side. I love it on meat-less Mondays ;), but if you want some meat make sure to add it after finishing step number 2.
- Time to eat!
