Once you’ve been Paleo for a while, you will without doubt look back on your days as a consumer of glue with a sense of disbelief. What in the name of the Great Shaman were you thinking…?
Cheap? Often. Filling? Unquestionably. Easy? Certainly.
What about tasty, or nutritious? Exactly.
Luckily, Paleo has a drop-in replacement for those horrid little extrusions of dehydrated adhesive, thanks to the humble zucchini, which some refer to as a courgette, and others the squash. Whatever floats your boat, mon ami.
Here the whatever-you-want-to-call-it is merely cut into tagliatelle-like strips, and then given a nice coat of tomato sauce. Simple as that.
- A whatever-you-want-to-call-it
- Tomato sauce
Preparation of the whatever-you-want-to-call-it is dead simple. For best results, I heartily recommend the use of a cheese plane. I have to, it’s a legal requirement of having Swedish family.
Simply plane off thin strips of whatever-you-want-to-call-it, and then stack them neatly on top of one another. Then, using a really sharp knife, cut out tagliatelle-like strips to the desired width. Gently tease them apart, and place in your serving bowl.
That’s it – you’re good to go.
Now, simply give them a coat of that tomato sauce you made earlier. Remember though, just the same as it was with the boiled glue, don’t over sauce your whatever-you-want-to-call-it tagliatelle!
