Cheddar Cheesy Zucchini Pappardelle

*zucchinipaparedelle

Because it is still apparently winter this late in March, I decided I needed something warming so I am slightly cooking the zucchini- you can definitely eat the noodles raw by salting them and setting them in a food dehydrator for a 1/2 hour or just set aside for 15-20 minutes so they soften. I pan fried the onion and garlic in 1T of coconut oil then quickly sautéed the noodles. Then the sauce and voila! Cheddar Cheesy Zucchini Pappardelle! THIS IS AWESOME.
