As much as i love pasta i like to vary my food a lot day to day so once in a while I like to make zucchini noodles! They're ready in an instant and really delicious when topped with a two-mushroom velouté sauce. This meal is also green on green most of the ingredients are different shades of the same colour.
Yes those are the sort of details that I really care about.
What green things can i add to this? Wakame for starters! I don't always have salads in my fridge when i don't i'll usually just use wakame. It's super handy to have around because it keeps for a long time since it's dried doesn't require a lot of prep either.
Edamame is another green food that I like very much. Mine were frozen initially so i had to let them thaw out first I got the type that is already de-shelled. Saves a lot of time. Make sure to get the unsalted kind!
Mushrooms sure as hell aren't green but they do add a TON of flavour to sauces. Shiitake mushrooms especially have a lot of flavour but they do add a TON of flavour to sauces. Shiitake mushrooms especially have a lot of flavour shimeji mushrooms are bit more subtle but they look really nice in a dish and they have a really fun texture. I had both on hand and besides combining many kinds of mushrooms together is never a bad thing.
Of course you can make this recipe using regular pasta but it wont be green... unless you use spinach pasta (which could look really good too). Or matcha pasta? A really awesome girl on twitter made some using my black pasta recipe as a base they look gorgeous!
As always if you make this don't hesitate to share your photos with me here in the comments below on twitter @grimgrains or on instagram 'grimgrains'. It's simple
