With the warmer weather finally hitting Maryland I am constantly craving all things light and citrusy when it comes to food. I have been guzzling sparkling water with grapefruit like it is my personal mission and I really cannot get enough lemon in just about everything I ingest.
That being said, when I found this recipe on Pinterest it spoke to my summer craving soul because of the olive oil/lemon vinaigrette. My undying love for feta may have also contributed as well. I am not going to lie to you guys, Matt made this one, not me, but that doesn't change the fact that I picked out the recipe and tasted it so, therefore, I can blog about it. He does get all of the credit for execution though.
My favorite thing about this recipe was that it tasted so delicious but was actually healthy and a great way to get an extra dose of veggies thanks to the switch from pasta to zoodles. Since zoodles are cooked they usually tend to be Crohn's friendly for me and the sauce didn't cause an issue which was refreshing. With other pasta options being creamy alfredo sauces, tomato sauces which can be upsetting, and pesto sauces which I love so much but my stomach can't handle, this option seems to be the best out of all of them. The taste, luckily, got two thumbs up as well. Even though I wasn't the one who actually made the dinner, I can vouch for the fact that it was relatively easy and didn't take to long at all. Needless to say, we will definitely be making this again for warm nights out on our patio! And trying some more light and fresh zoodle recipes.... maybe even making up some of our own!
