Looking for a healthy dinner recipe the entire family will love? The kids will love eating their veggies when you serve these delicious Pesto Zucchini Noodles With Chicken And Mushrooms. They were easy to make with my new Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer and now you can win one of your own. Keep reading to find out how.
I love getting new stuff for my kitchen, especially when it’s something that’s going to make my life easier. That’s why I’m totally loving my new Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer™. I’ve been a fan of Ninja products ever since I starting using their coffee system so when I discovered their newest kitchen product, I knew I had to have it.
The Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer has everything I need for my kitchen, all rolled up into one. Instead of having a separate appliance for every job, I’m saving a ton of space by having one smart base that transforms into four high-performance appliances: 72 oz. Total Crushing® Blender, 64 oz. Precision Processor™, 24 oz. Single-Serve Cup, and Auto-Spiralizer.
It also comes with lots of great features. The 12 Smart Programs are designed to give you the best results every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re making, salsa, pizza dough or margaritas, it has perfectly calibrated patterns of pulsing and pausing, along with just the right speed and power for each attachment. All you have to do is touch a button and it does all the work for you.
There are so many things that come with the Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer that you won’t need much else for your kitchen. The total crushing blender holds up to 9 cups and features stacked blades. My previous blenders only had blades at the bottom, so when I made frozen drinks, I’d still have little chunks of ice in my drink…annoying, right? Since the stacked blades go more than halfway up the middle of the blender, that won’t be much of a problem anymore. I used it to make a yummy White Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream.
You don’t even have to worry about changing out the settings when you switch out the blender and other pieces. With Smart Vessel Recognition, it will automatically senses which one you are using and pulls up the Intuitive Touchscreen menu specifically for it. You also don’t have to worry about splatters and spills…the screen is very easy to clean.
The single serve cup is definitely designed to make life easier. If you feel like making a smoothie for breakfast, just put all your ingredients in the cup, screw on the blade attachment and blend. Then all you have to do is turn it over, take off the blade and add the regular lid to take your smoothie on-the-go.
I really love that the food processor is so big, holding up to eight cups. My old food processor was really small and I sometimes had to make recipes in batches. It could be very inconvenient. Now I should be able to make pretty much any recipe I want in half the time. This also comes with a dough blade, which is going to come in handy since I’m always making cookies.
While I love my new blender and food processor, my favorite thing about the Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer is the auto spiralizer. Ever since I first heard of zoodles, I’ve wanted one. I like eating pasta but don’t like the fact that it’s not all that healthy. The idea of making pasta out of zucchini sounded awesome and I’d always wanted to try it. Now I finally could.
The spiralizer comes with blades to make spaghetti or fettuccine shaped “noodles”, which was all I needed, but you can buy other blades for even more variety. It’s easy to use, too. You just assemble the spiralizer by placing the spiralizer bowl on the base. Slide the collecting bowl inside and add the spaghetti blade.
Top with the feed chute lid and you’re ready to go. Place your zucchini inside, turn the base on and push the zucchini through with the food pusher.
Empty the collecting bowl and repeat with each zucchini.
Since this came with a recipe book as well, I thought I’d check it out to see what I could come up with for dinner. The recipe book made me realize that I could use the Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System with Auto-Spiralizer for every meal! There were recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even dessert. There were some pretty yummy looking cocktails too and I’ve got my eye on the Pear Ginger Sake Martini!
I had to think about dinner though and decided to try the Zucchini Spaghetti With Basil Pesto & Sweet Peas.
I changed up the recipe a bit, taking out the peas and adding chicken and mushrooms. Not only did I love it, my girls did too. It’s always a success when the kids ask for seconds! They had no idea they were eating veggies (shhh…don’t tell) so it was a win/win for everybody. You can check out the full recipe at the bottom of this post.
