Instructions
Make the Zoodles
  1. Grab your handy, dandy vegetable spiralizer (I love my Vegetti Pro from Amazon) and set it on the counter
  2. Cut the ends off the zucchini and cut them in half. No need to peel them
  3. Load up the spiralizer and zoodle away! If you don't have a spiralizer, use peeler and/or use regular pasta for this recipe
  4. Set the zoodles aside until you are ready to use them. Aren't they pretty?
Make the Chicken Sausage Sauce
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, add the chopped onion and sauté until the onions are translucent - about 5 minutes
  2. Add the Italian seasoning to the pan and sauté for a minute or two longer
  3. Grab the chicken and chicken sausage. I like to use both in the recipe. It keeps the sauce light and lower in fat, and it tastes fabulous
  4. Add the chicken and sausage to the pan and cook, breaking it up as you go, until it is no longer pink - about 10 minutes
  5. Add the tomatoes and tomato paste to the pan. I like either crushed tomatoes or whole peeled tomatoes (or both) in this dish as it gives the sauce a nice texture
  6. Bring the sauce to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for anywhere between 10 and 20 minutes. I often make this sauce a day ahead. It gets nothing but better overnight in the refrigerator
  7. Taste the sauce and add salt, pepper and more seasonings as needed
Bring it all Together
  1. Add a cup or so of the Zoodles to a bowl. You may have to cut them a bit if the strands are super long
  2. Add hot sauce to the Zoodles and let it sit for about 5 minutes. I really like my Zoodles al dente, if you like them softer, cook them in the sauce for 5-6 minutes
  3. Add a couple of tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese and enjoy. Easy, quick, light and incredibly delicious - this one's a winner all around!
