Easy Zucchini Fettucini

This makes a great lunch for one, esp on cold days. It's very quick & easy.
Or dinner if you wish!

You'll need:
1 zucchini
4 asparagus spears
1/4 cup frozen peas
1/2 tin italian tomatoes
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
black pepper, dried parsley to garnish

Step One:
Spiralize the zucchini & put in a microwave dish with 1/4 cup water.
You can just use a vegetable peeler if you don't have a spiralizer.
Microwave for 1 minute til zucchini is tender - longer time if you like your zucchini soft - or not at all if you want it raw!

Step Two:
Place cut asparagus, peas, garlic & lemon juice in a frypan. Lightly fry until asapargus has browned. Add the tomatoes & cook until tomatoes are bubbling - approx 4 mins.
Stir until well mixed.

Drain the zucchini, place in a bowl with the tomato mixture on top.
Sprinkle with black pepper and parsley to your tasting.

I have a Betty Bossi Spiralizer.
It's so easy to use & doesn't take up alot of cupboard space like a lot of other spiralizers do - also it is inexpensive by comparison.
