This is not diet food

Zucchini, Mushrooms and Tagliatelle. Mama Mia!

P-Man (I was asked by him to be called something other than hubby- lol) and I have decided to have 2 vegetarian meals a week. Tonight was veggies with pasta in a rich cream sauce. I don't think this was the right way to go for our first "healthy" meatless night. Oh well, we have one more day this week. I'll try to make it right.

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Butter

2 Small Zucchini, julienned

1 Small Pkg of your favorite mushrooms, sliced

1/2 Onion, Minced

2 Garlic Cloves, Minced

1/2 Cup Heavy Cream (or use Laughing Cow triangles for a low-fat sauce)

4 Tablespoons Parmesan Cheese

Salt & Pepper to Taste

1 Pkg Tagliatelle Pasta, cooked as directed on pkg


1. Heat Oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add zucchini and mushrooms and saute until golden brown. Remove and set aside.
2. Add onion and garlic to the pan and saute until golden brown. Stir in Cream and boil until sauce is reduced.
3. Add noodles, zuchhini, 2 tablespoon parmesan cheese, salt & pepper to taste to the cream sauce. Toss until heated through. Serve with additional parmesan cheese.

Enjoy! And be ready for bed afterwards!! :)

It may not be diet food, but it sure sounds good. Welcome back, Nic!
