Delicious side dish! Healthier than traditional mac and cheese but just as tasty!
"OMG. Yum. It's not Mac and cheese, but it's a great idea, and has nutritional value. Yum yum yum. I don't see why I couldn't make this with tiny cauliflower or broccoli florets, too. "
Melt butter in a large frying pan. Grate zucchini into pan and cook at a medium temperature until it is soft and mushy. Stirring occasionally.
Add the cheese and stir until melted.
Add the jalapeno, garlic, onion flakes and salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 more minutes, stirring often to keep the cheese from sticking to the bottom.
We often experiment with different kinds of cheeses (pepper jack, mozzarella, etc). You can use more or less cheese to suit your taste and also add many different toppings. Sometimes we even add sausage!
ocdickson 6m agoI loved this recipe. Thank you. Really easy and quick to make. Delicious. Even with crispy onion flakes and generous portions it is only 5g carbs per serving. Be careful how much jalapeño chilli you use!

Abpollard 4y agoVery quick and easy. Next time I will use half the amount of butter, probably around 1 1/2 tbsp instead.
