Zucchini Ribbon Pasta

With spring upon us, it’s time to pack in our fresh veggies with this zucchini ribbon pasta – perfect for Meatless Monday!

This past weekend, I was up in Murrieta, CA for The Big Potluck for a food blogging conference I’ve been looking forward to for several months. After a 3-hr car drive in the worst LA traffic, we finally made it to the venue. And then after having a bit too much wine the first night there, I severely suffered the consequences of the most “awesome” hangover I have ever experienced.

Lesson learned: alcohol + conferences do not go well together.

That being said, I’m sure my body is extremely unhappy with me so I thought I would try some clean eating for a full recovery with this pasta dish here. It’s a simple mixture with zucchini ribbons, cherry tomatoes, avocado and creamy goat cheese tossed in with a bit of lemon for some tanginess. I threw in some pine nuts too for that added crunch, but feel free to add what you have on hand – extra crunchiness is always well received!
