Creamy corn sauce with zoodles or penne

Sunday, October 08, 2017

Hey! Today we have for you easy and quick recipe for a corn sauce. It's delicious and spicy, just as we like it. There are two options for you with classic penne pasta, or any other kind you like, and second for lower calorie intake - with crispy zoodles! The sauce is also sweet and looks delicious. It's also students friendly, first recipe in our new series. And it takes less than 30 minutes to make it!

Today was a really busy day. Sometimes you have a lot of things on your mind. You do this and that and... oops I forgot something, so be quick and that's you who take care of everything. For days like this one we all need some easy recipes for lunch or dinner. It's better to eat something warm and quick than a simple sandwich. I feel like warm lunch gives me more energy for the rest of the day.

We also want to change our diet a bit and cook healthier and more responsible. As our holidays are coming to end we're going to have less time for cooking. And also some of our friends ask us for quick, healthy and students-friendly recipes. We're trying to put some on our blog soon. And this is the first one. You can find more 30 minutes recipes here.

The corn sauce is really easy to make. And it feels still like summer, because of CORN. When we were little we ate cooked corn with butter every year. What's more in this sauce is CHILLI, it gives THE taste. The sauce is spicy, but also has corn sweetness. And the color is beautiful!

My version was with zoodles. And it was 100% VEGAN and healthy. Also it has low calories, about 300 in my serving. I love zoodles, they're crispy and raw. The color is also nice and I love spaghetti and the way you eat it. Or maybe more like tagliatelle, they're even better. We have an electric spiralizer now, so making veggie noodles is even quicker and funnier. I could eat it every single day.

The second version was for our family, with penne pasta. It was also good. The sauce is creamy and it fits also with meat, like chicken. It would be very good. The sauce is also good when cold, so you can take it packed for school or work. If you have can heat it up it'll be even better. So let's go to the recipe and you'll have a nice lunch for tommorow.
