AIP Paleo Yellow Squash “Cheese” Sauce Recipe

Who doesn’t love a good cheese sauce?  One of the foods I missed most, while on the AIP, was cheese.  I used to use cheese on everything!  Even though I’ve been able to add some sheep’s milk cheese to my diet, I still don’t like to overdo it.  That’s why I was so excited to discover Hayley from I Eat Real Food‘s recipe for Zucchini Cheese.  It was love at first site!  But, I found myself, more often than not, melting it to put over different dishes.  Then, when my zucchini didn’t show up in my Door To Door Organics delivery last week, I decided to create my own melted cheese sauce…with yellow squash instead.  That’s when my Yellow Squash “Cheese” Sauce was born!

This “cheese” sauce is AIP paleo compliant. If you can’t have nutritional yeast, it will not taste cheesy without it; but, it will still make a pretty good sauce.  You could always add a little coconut milk to the blender to make it more of a garlic Alfredo sauce.  Just make sure to keep any leftovers in a jar in the fridge.  It will keep for about a week.  You will need to simply reheat it in the microwave or a small saucepan, when needed.

Prosciutto Wrapped “Cheese” Stuffed Zucchini Boats Recipe

Every day, I hear from at least one person that their kitchen is overflowing with zucchini.  It seems everyone’s crops are producing lots and lots of zucchini.  I recently found myself with the same problem. After making zoodles, zucchini fries, and a big ole block of zucchini cheese, I still had a few left over.  That’s when this Prosciutto Wrapped “Cheese” Stuffed Zucchini Boats Recipe was created.

Frankly, before I went all paleo and everything, I used to put cheese on just about everything.  I mean, I am part French after all.  That’s why I was so happy when I saw Hayley of I Eat Real Food‘s recipe for Zucchini Cheese in Paleo Magazine.  With a few tweaks, I was able to make it into a fantastic cheese substitute. It’s great melted over burgers, too!

These Prosciutto Wrapped “Cheese” Stuffed Zucchini Boats are bubbly and “cheesy”.  They bring together the flavors of ham and cheese, in a healthier version.  And, they’re completely AIP approved! Enjoy!
