Today, we’re doing something new over here – introducing the first of a series of Sunday guest posts! What does that mean? Each Sunday I’ll be bringing you some kick ass content from fabulous guest bloggers who will share their recipes and all around coolness with you.
So to get this party started, first up is Vanessa from Plaid & Paleo. She’s a whiz at taking classic dishes, paleofying those bad boys and making them even better. This recipe for a Spicy Italian Pasta dish is no exception – take it away, Vanessa!
Hey all! I’m so excited to be blogging here on Meatified today! Rach’s food pictures always catch my eye, and I can’t get over her awesome recipes. It is officially Spring, which means lots of great things: warmer weather, longer days and farmers markets. When I lived in Southern California, I was spoiled by year-round farmers markets. Now that I am back in the Midwest, I’ve been counting down the days until my local market opens. I still have a couple weeks left until opening day but wanted to create a dish full of farm fresh produce. Thankfully my grocery store keeps local produce stocked.
Recently I’ve been wanting to spiralize everything! I’m a little late to the spiralizer party, but better late than never. In college, I pretty much lived off of pasta. I still remember cooking penne in an electric kettle in my dorm then dosing it with alfredo from a jar. Today I’d take a big bowl of zoodles or spaghetti squash any time over regular pasta! I recently discovered white sweet potatoes. The flavor is much more neutral than their colorful orange counterpart. These sweet potato noodles provide the perfect base for this veggie filled sauce.
Enjoy!! x vanessa
PS – if you would like your very own handy dandy vegetable noodle-making contraption of awesomeness, here’s where you find ‘em!
