Zesty Zucchini Ribbons, Artichokes & Mixed Beans with Wheat Fettuccine

Zesty Zucchini Ribbons, Artichokes & Mixed Beans with Wheat FettuccineI was on a rush Saturday lunch-time to get something quick, but healthy in front of my kids.  This pasta came to be a savior as I decided to pull things from my fridge and start prepping while my pasta came to a boil.  Not much thinking was involved, except to put the ingredients that were already in my fridge into an edible state.

Even though my beautiful picture shows the vegetables over pasta, I actually served it separate to my picky children. They don’t like to see their food mixed together.  I am being patient on how I serve their food as long as they are trying to eat their vegetables.

The outcome was delicious, hearty and beautiful! If you have never used a mandolin, or a vegetable peeler on slicing vegetables, it works great on zucchinis.  They not only come out beautiful like ribbons, but they also have a silky-like texture like ribbons, which makes eating them so much more fun.

Overall I was happy with my creation and results.  I also felt at peace that both of my girls ate their food and got rewarded with bubble bath play.

    Thanks so much! I am still trying to take better pictures. I feel like I struggle more with my camera than cooking.

    I really love using frozen artichokes for quick meals. They are still delicious and love that it's already quartered and ready to go.

    Veggie pasta dishes are some of my favorite! This will be perfect for when everyone has 2039503 zucchini growing in their garden. 🙂

    Sounds delicious. I might try using chicken broth in place of the cream to cut down the calories. Some day I hope not to have to worry about calories!

    That might not be such a bad idea!

    I made a similar dish this past week with zucchini ribbons. I love this addition of artichokes and beans! 🙂

    This was my first time trying it out as ribbons – did not know what I was missing.
