White Bean Creamy Alfredo with Zucchini Pasta + Le Creuset

I know, I know. Another zucchini pasta dish, but what can I say, we eat zucchini pasta weekly and there are so many different healthy ways to fix it! This White Bean Creamy Alfredo with Zucchini Pasta has become a recent favorite. It is SO easy to make and other than a few spices and herbs, contains 4 ingredients. Zucchini + White Beans + Almond Milk + Cheese. That’s pretty much it. You’ll definitely want to add in a little garlic, salt, and pepper to give it that creamy Alfredo taste, but let me also strongly recommend the smoked paprika and turmeric. They add a little color, but more importantly add such great flavor.

And best of all, I’ve got a great GIVEAWAY for you today! I’m a huge fan of Le Creuset, and they’ve got a brand new line of nonstick cookware. I had the honor of receiving their shallow frying pan and casserole saucepan, both of which I used in this recipe. These pieces make for such easy cleanup. I have other nonstick cookware pieces made by other manufacturers, but non the quality of these. We eat a lot of eggs in our house and I can cook them in the shallow frying pan without the use of any cooking spray or butter to grease the pan. That saves me both time and money. You can read some additional features of these great products below:

Each piece is infused with Le Creuset’s brand DNA and smart design:


The new line is made of the same proven material as the current:
