super lazy eats: zucchini spaghetti

I think spaghetti may very well be everybody's go-to lazy eat. I mean, how hard is it to boil pasta and heat up some sauce? I've been doing that since I was ten.

Growing up, we made our spaghetti with ground beef. After I got married, I switched to ground turkey. Then, I went vegetarian. You know I wasn't going to just eat noodles and sauce. The whole starch and sauce or starch and cheese sans veggies thing is a pet peeve of mine.

I quickly started enjoying finding new ways to dress up pasta. And it was EASY. Chop something up and toss it in the sauce. Tasty and healthy!

At some point, I fell in love with zucchini all over again. Nine times out of ten, if I am making pasta, zucchini is included! The good news is, Sean loves it too! Oh, and did I mention it's super easy? Really...look:

Zucchini Spaghetti:

You Will Need:

Whole grain angel hair pasta: 1/2 box 
Pasta sauce, your choice: 1 jar 
Zucchini: 1 
Crumbled feta cheese: to garnish


Do I really need to explain?
Boil the pasta.

While that is happening, simmer the sauce mixed with the zucchini that you've cut into bite size pieces. Put the sauce on the pasta and the feta on the sauce. Yum!
