Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp pure Irish grass-fed butter
  • 1 10 ounce package baby bella mushrooms diced
  • 1/2 medium red onion diced
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 - 1 cups vegetable broth originally I used 2 cups, but it was too much liquid!
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 zucchini spiralized
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 10 ounce package baby bella mushrooms large chunks

Instructions

  • For the mushroom marsala, add Irish butter to medium sized pan and melt over medium heat.
  • Add mushrooms and onions and saute until tender.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the apple cider vinegar. Return the pan to the heat and let it simmer 1-2 minutes.
  • Add parsley, thyme, salt and pepper, then stir in almond meal, covering all vegetables.
  • Mix cornstarch with vegetable broth and add to vegetables, then add the almond milk, and stir to combine well. Allow to simmer about 5-7 minutes on low until thickened.
  • Meanwhile, spiralize zucchini into noodles and chop second 10 oz mushrooms into large chunks.
  • Add spiraled zucchini to large pan, and cook approx 3 minutes or until just barely tender (not too soft), then stir in the mushroom marsala sauce, chopped mushrooms and 1/2 cup cheese.
  • Pour zucchini and mushroom mixture into 9x13 casserole dish (or slightly smaller) and top with remaining 1 1/2 cups cheese, along with some fresh chopped parsley. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
  • Allow to cool 10 minutes before eating, top with additional chopped parsley and parmesan cheese if desired.

Notes

Chicken would be a great addition to this dish!
