3. Zucchini Pasta Skewers
People sometimes mistakenly think of zucchini as a bland, watery, and under-seasoned side dish. Needless to say, we completely disagree. The reason that so many recipes call for zuke is that it's delicious, affordable, and super versatile – you can turn it into zoodles, use it as a base for a cake, or fry it up for a zucchini latke. But you've probably never had a zucchini skewer before, right? And we're not using wood, either – the skewer is actually made out of linguine! Get the recipe for the Zucchini Pasta Skewers.
