Oodles of Noodles

Zucchini Pasta

Zucchini noodles (or zoodles as they are affectionately called) have become a recent popular food trend and I was absolutely intrigued by this idea. Replacing pasta with zucchini? Sign me up! I recently posted about comparing two different vegetable peelers in order to create noodles from zucchini, here’s how it all went down

The reigning champion of the “peel-off” was the Veggetti, vegetable slicer. It created a much more consistent noodle and I was happy that these noodles essentially looked like pasta. Who needs gluten anyway?

Once I tested the slicer, I very quickly sliced 8 zucchini into thick noodles, since the vegetable slicer is so easy to use. Speaking of ease of use, cooking these noodles only takes a few minutes, which is the cherry on top of this quick dinner.

Since these noodles are fragile, be sure to boil them for a few minutes to avoid breakage. I topped these zucchini noodles with bolognese sauce but these noodles are so versatile that they will go with anything!

I’m so excited to make these zucchini noodles over and over again. Let me know about your zucchini noodle experiences in the comment section below. 

Happy concocting!

    Zucchini noodles are my new favourite thing. I don’t cook them separately, though. Just toss them in whatever sauce I have for a few minutes (often just olive oil and garlic in the pan). My daughter isn’t a huge fan and wants regular pasta, so in future I may cook some “real” pasta and then combine with the zoodles. Yum.
