No, this isn't real pasta or real sausage. It's even better with tons of healthy deliciousness. Come on, get healthy!
As I mentioned before, my husband refused to admit this tasted like sausage, but in the same breath he said it was one of the best dishes I've made. Healthy is to delicious as win is to win.

Zucchini "Pasta" with Walnut "Sausage"
Inspired by Shutterbean and Choosing Raw
2 medium zucchinis
2 TBL olive oil
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 garlic cloves, chopped
2/3 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup fresh sage, chopped
1/4 tsp red chile flakes
salt & pepper
1/4 cup grated fresh parmesan
Boil a pot of salted water on the stovetop. While the water is heating up, make noodles out of the zucchini by slicing them up with a vegetable peeler. Boil the zucchini for 2 minutes then strain and set aside.
Add the onion and olive oil to a pan over medium heat. Cook until transparent then add garlic and chile and cook a minute more. Add the walnuts, sage, salt & pepper and cook until heated through.
To plate, add some sausage to your pasta and top with grated parmesan. Enjoy!
