I LOVE THIS MACHINE. The Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer.  There, I said it.  I received this for Christmas, and boy to do you get BANG for your BUCK.  It’s less than $30.  Who doesn’t love a kitchen gadget that can provide hours of fun for your kids?  Don’t believe me, see below:

On to the recipe.

For two adults, use two large yellow squash (zucchini also works!) and one large carrot.  Run them through the kid-powered spiralizer with the large blade setting.  If you aren’t lucky enough to own a Spiral Slicer, you can julienne or thinly slice the squash and carrots by hand.

Raw Spiral Squash

Preheat a large saucepan with 2 tablespoons coconut oil over medium-high heat.   Add the veggies and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic.  Stir and let cook for approximately 10-15 minutes.

In a separate saucepan, make up a fresh batch of tomato or marinara sauce.  Or, use a high quality brand jarred sauce.  Make sure there are no added sugars or starches to the sauce.

Once the veggies are almost done, add the sauce to the pan and warm it all together.
