I made a zucchini crusted pizza recently, and so had left-over shredded zucchini sitting in my fridge. Tonight I was making a tomato pasta sauce for dinner, and threw in the leftover shredded zucchini just for the sake of using it up (waste not want not! I’ve come to learn that cooking with this philosophy is a great way to stumble upon original new recipes you may love).
I have since discovered that shredded zucchini in pasta sauce is divine. Wow. It gives the sauce a rich, meaty body. I’ve only ever chopped it into my sauce when I had it on had, and would never run out to get a zucchini just because I was making a tomato pasta sauce…but from now on I just might.
Zucchini, you be growing on me.
