Spaghetti with Zucchini, Parmesan + Garlic (Noodles + Zoodles)

Zoodles on their own just don't do it for me. I eat an entire bowl of them and am starving 10 minutes later. Just me? I also love pasta so freaking much that damn it how can you say the two are the same? Ok don't worry, this isn't a rant on zucchini noodles. They too have their merits. They are delightful in salads and excellent when you want to keep things light and tight. And even more so, they're perfect when you want zucchini with your pasta, but not huge chunks of veg that don't really blend in.
 

Parisian Dinner Party: Chicken a la Moutarde

I chose chicken with mustard sauce for my Parisian dinner because I love the complexity of the thick mustard sauce, and the subtle tartness that crème fraîche provides. When planning parties, I limit the time-consuming dishes to one or two, max. I want the evening to feel special, but I don't want to be so exhausted by the time people come over that I'm ready for bed. And while this chicken require a few extra steps, you will be repaid handsomely for your efforts.
