Zucchini Spaghetti Pasta | 3 Different Ways | Keto Recipes | Headbanger’s Kitchen
Horns up and welcome to a brand new
episode of Headbangers Kitchen, and i’m
back with a brand new Keto recipe.
Last week, I made cauliflower pizza. Yep
if you haven’t seen that yet, go and
watch it. And today I’m going to be
making some zucchini pasta
or as they call it zucchini spaghetti, but
honestly, to get that spaghetti shape
you need to buy something called the
spiralizer and I’m not convinced enough
you have to spend about 4,000
Indian rupees on one.
So, instead, we’re going to make zucchini
“pasta” so that the spaghetti mafia doesn’t
get offended and, in fact, ours is more
like a fettuccine. And I’m going to show
you three different recipes, one with a tomato base, one with a cheese base
and one with a pesto base.
So let’s go and make zucchini pasta. Now
to make your zucchini pasta you can
either use a yellow zucchini or green
zucchini, probably doesn’t matter,
and all you need to do is take your
peeler and start peeling it into
now I personally am not using the skin,
because, for some reason, actually the
they taste weird on the skin especially
when eaten just like this, but what you
want to do is keep peeling the zucchini
flesh till you reach the core of it
once you reach the core, you don’t know
you want to peel anymore and it’s really
that’s your zucchini fettuccine! And we’re done!
well the zucchini broke in two, but as you
can see I’ve reach the core, so it’s quite
alright. These make a great snack
while cooking. Let’s go make zucchini
pasta three different ways.
Alright, so the first one is a delicious
zucchini pasta bake and it’s so easy
it’s not even funny.
So, first, you take an ovenproof dish and
in that we’re going to put our zucchini
pasta. On top of that we’re going to pour
over our favorite pasta sauce
you can use a store-bought one if you like
or you can make yours fresh at home
I’m going to chop up some salami
me that i got from the Czech Republic
and just going to fry that in a pan, so it
gets nice and crispy
I’m going to add that into my pasta dish
and I’m going to put a spoon of
Now this is mainly because i’m on a Keto
diet and I need to get fat from the olive oil
but if you’re eating regular food you
can just skip the olive oil, just put a
wee bit if you like. The next thing I
going to do is mix this all up nicely
Now if it looks a little dry to you you can
add an extra bit of sauce
I think i’m going to do that and then I
smothered it with a whole layer of cheese
Mmm, and now I put this in an oven
to bake it 200 degrees for about 10
minutes and cook it till the top is nice
and golden brown. And that’s it,
your zucchini spaghetti bake is ready, and
oh my god!
Does that look delicious or does that
That’s one down and two more to go and
now we’re going to make our zucchini
pasta in a creamy cheesy white sauce
with some mushroom and bacon and some
Let’s go make it. We’re going to start by
heating up some olive oil in a pan and
to that we’re going to add some chopped
garlic and I like a lot of garlic in
mine and you want to cook the garlic
till it starts to brown
why the garlic is cooking we’re going to
chop up to mushrooms into little pieces
and throw them into the pan as well
Saute this for a bit and add in your
I mean zucchini fettuccine. Damn, I keep
making the same mistake.
Let your zucchini cook for a bit and add
in your cream pour in the cream and then
sprinkle on a generous helping of cheese
and you want that cheese and the cream
to melt together and become a delicious
cheesy sauce. Then, on the side, we’re going
to quickly fry up some bacon, chop it up
nice and fine and then sprinkle it all
over our pasta
Give it a good mix and we’re going to
quickly chop up some parsley and use that
and finish off our pasta
oh my god that looks so good!
Creamy, cheesy, bacony, mushroomy and
delicious. Yum yum!
That’s two down and one more to go
And the third one is the most simple of
It’s a delicious pesto pasta with just…
it doesn’t even need anything. It’s just
got pesto and some Parmesan cheese.
It’s delicious! Let me show you how to
make it. So the first thing we’re going to
do is again heat some olive oil in our
pan and add the zucchini spaghetti to
that. Stir it around a bit and once you
see the zucchini start to soften add a
nice big spoon of pesto. You can use
any pesto you like – you can use homemade
or store bored and just give that a good
mix and then we’re going to grate some
Parmesan cheese over that and then turn
the gas off
that’s it, it’s literally that simple and
Alright, so here are the three different
zucchini passes and this is my favorite
part where I get to taste this.
I’m going to start with the pesto, let’s
Ooh yummy, I can twirl it as well.
Yummy, I mean pesto, parmesan cheese,
Delicious. I didn’t even really need
to season this at all because the pesto
has everything. Delicious.
Now I’m going to try the creamy, cheesy.
Oh yeah, take it with a piece of bacon
twirl it on my fork.
Oh Heavenly Father, I’m not really
religious but cheese, cream
bacon, parsley, I’m in heaven
And now the final one, the one I’m
looking forward to most because of this
delicious crusty layer of cheese on the
top and I deliberately cook it till it’s
like a nice hard layer of cheese almost.
Yep, it’s a little difficult to cut through
with a fork but get a piece of that
some that zucchini.
crispy cheese and the salami and the
tomato sauce and zucchini… To be really
the zucchini is just a vehicle, much like
the cauliflower was in the cauliflower
pizza. And I really hope you enjoyed

dish at home. In fact, if you’ve got two
