Gnocchi with Zucchini Ribbons with Parsley (sans brown butter)

Still on my meat fast and finding that I'm really enjoying it. I'm feeling lighter, clearer, brighter. I've noticed subtle difference in my body as well. Maybe it's the running, boxing, snowshoeing but I'm seeing tightening here and narrowing there. Or maybe it's just my imagination. No matter. I like it.

I have been stuck a little on couscous lately and needed a change (true to my nature). So I sent out the call to those I know who truly live a vegetarian lifestyle and asked them for their tried and trues.

A co-worker sent me links to online recipes from sites she found good. And, drool, I instantly knew what I wanted: Italian. I don't remember a time when I didn't enjoy Italian! When I stumbled upon this recipe I knew it was love at first site. Not only Italian but had Gnoochi (silent G).

Gnocchi with Zucchini Ribbons & Parsley Brown Butter. Nutmeg makes a nice surprise in this recipe. Blended with parm and parsley...there is a nice zing to it.

One subtle tweak: I used olive oil instead of butter. Little healthier and yum yum!
