Dinners sometimes get a little interesting when Casey is working late. Cooper and I put together snack dinners, we eat leftovers, and sometimes I resort to cereal or popcorn for dinner. When Casey's home I cook heartier meals-- more meat & carb related things.
But sometimes, I make Cooper and I separate things because maybe I want something vegetable heavy and maybe he doesn't. On this particular night I had a zucchini in the fridge and a sausage to cook. This is what I made! Sausage is browned, marinara is stirred in. We have instant meat sauce. A quick sauté for the zucchini and we marry the two to make this delicious Zucchini Noodles with Sausage bowl. Serves 1 or 2 if you feel like sharing.
You could get yourself a spiralizer or use a box grater for this! I chose box grater. It was closest to the kitchen.
Let's get our ingredients together. There's not much required.
I added red pepper flakes later....
We grate the zucchini.
Sauce + basil.
Skillet cleaned out. Oil. Zucchini.
Layer the mozzarella. You want some to get down in there.
TOP with sauce and such.
I added a bunch of red pepper flakes because I like it spicy.
Next time I'll add basil. I killed all of mine this summer...
