Chef’s Table: Alexis Schulze shares her Zucchini Pasta Recipe

Posted on: March 24th, 2015 by Taryn Jeffries 1 Comment

Alexis Schulze_NekterAlexis Schulze has created a life of making healthy choices for herself, educating others on doing the same and providing excellent options for everyone’s tastes. Her and her husband, Steven, created nekter Juice Bar after finding that many juice offerings in the market were sugar laden and rife with preservatives.

After feeling a little defeated, they decided to do something about it and created the concept of a neighborhood juice that really focused on the ingredients, reasonable pricing and tantalizing flavors. The nekter menu quickly brought in customers looking to enhance their diet with fresh juices, hearty smoothies, snacks, acai bowls, bottled Nekter Grab n’ Gos and their popular 1,2,3 & 5 day Nekter Cleanse Program (15 pounds of cold pressed fruits and vegetables packed into a day’s cleanse).

Alexis’ day begins and ends with healthful choices and she is ensuring that her children have appreciation for and taste for natural food and ingredients. She has graciously shared one of her family’s favorite dishes that makes a frequent appearance on her Chef’s Table with us; Zucchini Pasta.

This is a simple kid friendly sauce as is but you could sneak in some sautéed veggies since you're puréeing at the end. Carrots or red bell peppers will sweeten and add depth of flavor.

Alexis shared, “I love to make this for my kids – it tastes just as good as spaghetti and tomato sauce, but it is a healthy version of it. I’m able to sneak in many servings of greens easily without them noticing (zucchini pasta, fresh veggies in the sauce), and they always go back for seconds!”
