This Zoodles Primavera is a better-for-you spin on a classic pasta dish that really hits the spot!

Fresh spiralized zucchini noodles from Heinen’s Produce Department are combined with a rainbow of other veggies and a creamy garlic sauce to create a mouthwatering meal that’s delicious and easy to make, even on the busiest of nights.

Pre-Spiralized Zoodles

A traditional primavera sauce typically uses butter, but this recipe calls for an Fx-approved substitute: ghee. Ghee is actually made from butter. The only difference is that the milk proteins are removed from ghee, making it a great option for those with dairy sensitivities or anyone looking for a healthier butter alternative. If you are vegan, simply substitute the ghee with avocado oil.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
