Zucchini Noodles and Spicy Sausage with Pumpkin Rosemary Sauce
2 medium zucchini
1 sausage of choice (I like spicy pork or chicken for a little kick)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 Tbsp butter
1 shallot, chopped
1 glove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp rosemary, chopped (I’ve used dried but fresh would probably take this to another level)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup hot water
Use a julienne peeler to peel your zucchini into strips. Peel until you reach the seeds then discard the core.
Remove sausage from casing and brown in a skillet over medium heat. Once cooked through, remove from pan and set aside.
Heat oil and butter (I used ghee) in a skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, rosemary, and garlic. Cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in pumpkin and water, adding more if necessary to reach desired consistency. Simmer until just thickened.
In another skillet, saute zucchini noodles until softened and warmed through, about 3 minutes. Toss in sauce and crumble sausage on top. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired!
