I’m sure you’ve seen the meme where Jason Bateman looks into the bag marked “Dead Dove: DO NOT EAT” and he looks into the bag, his face falls, and he says “I don’t know what I expected…”
Well, if you haven’t, here:
Which brings me to veggetti.
It tastes like someone spiralized a zucchini and then sautéed it in some butter with some oregano and fresh basil and then put some spaghetti sauce on it.
Zucchini, as you know, is just thiiiis close to tasteless. It hasn’t quite achieved celery-level tastelessness, but compared to, say, spaghetti, it’s nothing more than a spaghetti sauce delivery device.
Don’t get me wrong: this is much better than something that tastes bad.
It’s just that veggetti may have been oversold.
The spaghetti sauce makes for one heck of a nice chicken parmesan, though.
This weekend, however, will be devoted to making a nice pastaless slow cooker lemon chicken piccata.
Maybe it will eventually end up on a bed of veggetti.
So… what’s on your docket?
