We love making yummy dishes with our awesome spiralizer!!
If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can find veggies that have been ‘spiralized’ at most supermarkets and well-stocked gourmet markets. Spiralized vegetables are so much fun to cook with and the results are delicious and very healthy!
HOW TO MAKE SPIRALIZED RATATOUILLE
Ratatouille is a French recipe that has been made in kitchens around the world for generations.
It is especially popular in the summertime when fresh vegetables are in abundance.
We love using fresh zucchini and yellow squash for our Spiralized Ratatouille, but you are free to use whatever you have on hand!
With the use of our trusty spiralizer attachment, we crank about the long strands of veggies!
SIMILAR TO A PASTA DISH
This dish will feel like you are preparing an amazing pasta dish. Sort of like our Pappardelle Bolognese.
But here’s the great thing, you getting an even healthier dish but still maintain excellent taste and texture.
A fresh tomato sauce will dress the spiralized ratatouille perfectly. The sauce can be made up to 1 week in advance and gently reheated before serving.
FINISHING OFF THE DISH
Now, all that’s needed is to bring it all together in a large skillet.
Cook it all together until the liquid reduces down a little.
Oh, this is the good stuff!

Just bought a Spiralizer for my mixer. It has become the craze here. Can’t wait to try this great looking receipe, as it is very hot here, and we enjoy many cold salad’s.
