Buttery Herb Zucchini Spaghetti

Remember how I was so determined to finish all 7 Harry Potter books this summer?

Doesn’t that feel like a long time ago? I am about 3/4 of the way through the 6th one and … well, that being said, I haven’t touched it since August. Until yesterday. And I don’t remember a dang thing that’s going on. I am NOT going to reread all 600 pages that I’ve already accomplished – that’s for sure – so I’m trying to skim random places throughout the book to remember. It’s not exactly working.

Despite my inability to remember anything (seriously need to work on this as a dietetic student), I feel like zucchini spaghetti would totally be something they would serve at Hogwarts with their dragon milk cheese and pumpkin juice.

Something about turning a vegetable into a noodle is the COOLEST thing since sliced bread. Literally. It’s practically magical. I mean, the options are endless. The first time I ate it, I actually ate it with marinara. But then I ran out so I decided to whip up a buttery herb sauce. I don’t ever cook with butter but when I do, it is soooo good.

Do your belly a favor. Eat your vegetables the buttery noodle way.
