"Reverse" Zucchini Pasta



One method that a lot of parents use to get their kids to eat their vegetables is to incorporate the vegetables into dishes, like mixing chopped zucchini and mushrooms into pasta sauce. I reversed this method, by mixing pasta into pasta sauce served over zucchini pasta. If you don't have a spiralizer handy, simply use a vegetable peeler to peel thin strips of zucchini and cut the strips in half. 

I'm using brown rice pasta that we got from our Wegman's scavenger hunt; it came in different shapes like bicycles and cars ;)
