Roasted Garlic Chicken and Veggie Primavera

Happy Healthy Food Friday!

This week I’m thinking of my most recent get away this past long weekend, where we ended up on a local farm filled with tons of fresh produce. I of course was a kid in a candy shop and took home an abundance of goodies. Let’s start with zucchini. At this point if you’ve been around the blog a while, you know my favorite way of using zucchini is making pasta dishes! Zucchini linguine, or “zoodles,” have become widely popular due to the amazing Spiralizer
