    My wife got me this spiralizer thing that makes zucchini ribbons. I'm still on a low carb diet so I made zucchini noodles and meatballs. Thought I'd share the process with y'all nice folks. I started by pouring myself some bourbon on rocks.

    did you actually eat it? were you able to make yourself believe spiralized zucchini is really green pasta?

    I got the sauce going first. I had some pancetta left over so I diced it and fried it up. Then sweat some onions before I added fresh garlic.

    the keto mavins on FB keep trying to tell me that if i roast a radish it tastes like a potato. we have this long running argument there. my position is, the only thing that tastes like a potato is a potato. no matter what you do to a radish it is still a radish. same for zucchini and spaghetti squash.

    Add some fresh parsley, dried oregano, salt, pepper and some hot pepper flakes. The wife likes the little bite the pepper flakes give it. I do too.
