You’ll need a spiral slicer for this recipe, in order to create long, noodle strands out of zucchini. If you don’t already have a spiral slicer, it’s a great tool that makes low-carb noodles quickly and easily. The addition of roasted asparagus to this pasta is simply delicious. Enjoy!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 bunch, organic asparagus
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- dash of sea salt and pepper
- 5 organic zucchini
- 2 Tablespoons sun dried tomatoes, chopped
For the dressing:
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 2 Tablespoons yellow onion, chopped
- 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup fresh chives, thinly sliced
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
- Trim the ends off the asparagus, and chop into ½ inch pieces. Place in a medium bowl and combine with the olive oil and a dash of salt and pepper. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
- Trim the ends from the zucchini and use a veggie peeler to remove the green skin. Cut the zucchini in half, width-wise, then run through a spiral slicer to create long, angel hair noodles. Place the noodles in a large bowl. Add the sun dried tomatoes and roasted asparagus.
- In a small bowl combine all of the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the noodle salad and mix well to combined.
