what to serve under pasta sauce?

Post by Annieh on Tue Jan 16 2018, 04:54

I have picked more broccoli than I know what to do with, even after feeding half to the chickens.

I found a sauce recipe, garlic onion tomatoes etc that looks good and uses 500g of steamed broccoli.

However it is served on pasta and topped with cheese.

The cheese I am happy to go with (LOVE cheese), but what could I use as a base??

Smile I use bolognese sauce to put on steamed broccoli or other veggies...

It would depend on your strictness/sensitivities... there are a number of alternative glutenfree pasta's available, aside from zoodles...

Make your own? http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/05/gluten-free-fresh-pasta.html

Go Asian? Depending on the recipe it might work... rice noodles or a more 'exotic' like yam/buckwheat/shirataki etc. http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/08/asian-noodle-shopping-guide.html (ignore the gluten options Cool )

Make gnocchi? http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2012/06/gluten-free-potato-gnocchi-recipe.html

A bowl. Call it a soup/stew.

An omelet.

Big pile of shrimp.

Baked potato.

Celeriac.

I second the spaghetti squash idea. It's great that way.

All great suggestions! I do even have shrimp in the fridge right now and NEVER would have thought of putting those together. This will be breakfast today, Thanks Smile

Oh well I had it with the shrimp but it wasn't great.

I also tried with on beetroot "chips" and topped with cheese, that really tasted good.

I wouldn't want to use cauliflower rice for this one, there is already plenty of broccoli.

Since I'm not a purist, I probably would have put it over white rice or quinoa. I like the  soup idea also. Ooh, just thought - what if you poached some eggs in it, then put the eggs in a bowl and spooned the sauce over them?

I usually just make a pile of vegetables to put pasta sauce on. Or a pile of meat Smile But I also like Banza chickpea pasta. Probably not for a purist with chickpeas, tapioca, pea protein and xanthum gum, but they are pretty low carb.
