No Way Am I Calling them Zoodles – They’re Zucchini Noodles

I love pasta, don’t you? Pasta is so yummy and filling and so carb-heavy. I’ve been eyeing those tools you can make noodles out of vegetables for awhile, but the videos and comments weren’t very impressive and I don’t need more work to do. Really!

So, when I saw this tool online I had to try it.

It’s called Veggeti and I got mine at Bed, Bath and Beyond. This little tool is great!

  1. You clean the squash.
  2. Slice off the ends.
  3. Stick it in and twist!

That’s it and these long strips of squash come out and they look and act just like noodles. I cook them the same way too – only faster.

I’ve been eating them nearly every day since I got the damn thing too. Last night, after shoveling rocks all afternoon there was no way we had the energy to go and get a dinner out. Saturday night be damned! We were staying home.

So, I sauteed thin slices of onion, red pepper, green pepper and mushrooms in olive oil and garlic, then added 2 cups of vegetable broth and the zucchini noodles and let it cook.

Voila! a lovely bowl of Pho and no carbs.

Delicious. Go get one now.

Can’t wait to try these noodles with marinara sauce.
