When you're eating gluten-free or grain-free and being mindful of your intake of pre-made foods....dishes like fetuccinne, gnocchi, and lasagna get rotated out in place of lighter fare.

I got to stay at my good friend Maddy's house in Denver last weekend on my little trip to snow country and she happened to have a julienne blade in her drawer. Yes!! Zucchini Pasta happened! To make dinner complete, I marinated a piece of Sea Bass in a little maple syrup, some slivered almonds,  grapeseed oil, gluten free breadcrumbs and salt and pepper. It was delicious, but the real star of the show was the zuchhini! You could top your noodles with guacamole, a little fresh lemon, … [Read more...]
