Do you like brie? I love brie. Did you ever consider adding it to a dish as opposed to eating as an appetizer?
My gluten free pasta dish takes advantage of brie cheese. In this GF Brie Mozzarella Fettuccini & Zoodles, I use two kinds of cheese and two kinds of noodles. Brie is a strong cheese. So you do not want to use too much of it. I used gluten free fettuccini but added zoodles. I frequently add zoodles to my pasta to give some texture and color. However, I read an article or recipe this week that talked about substituting half of a mashed potato recipe with cauliflower. I guess, this zoodle substitution is kind of the same thing. By adding the zoodles, I am reducing the calorie count but adding to the recipe. DOUBLE WIN.
I would like to share a number of the zoodle recipes I have made to show you a number of different ways they can be used. The first is a VEGAN MEATBALL dish that is served over a gluten free spaghetti mixed with zoodles. Or this VEGAN RED PEPPER SAUCE served again over a spaghetti zoodle mixture. Or this is SMOKED SALMON ALFREDO served over zoodles solely. The last idea is a traditional MARINARA SAUCE served a top zoodles.
Making this GF Brie Mozzarella Zucchini & Zoodles recipe is quite easy. It is made in one non-stick skillet beginning with the sautéing of some shallots in butter. The dish is made creamy by creating a roux and adding coconut milk. Next, the cheese is mixed in and the rest of the ingredients are added folded in to complete.
