It used to be that when people craved pasta, but not the carbs, they had only one easy option: spaghetti squash. While that’s all fine and good, let’s all be honest here and admit that it’s not all that satisfying (and sometimes annoyingly sweet). You can’t even twirl it on your fork. Thankfully, the invention of the spiralizer has given us many more options, our favorite being zucchini noodles.
Zucchini noodles are not only a great way to use up the overwhelming supply of summer squash, but they’re also delicious. The zucchini’s subtle flavor makes zoodles a perfect substitute for pasta. Also, eating a plate of them gets you closer to satisfying your daily requirement for veggies.
Some recipes call for sauteing the zoodles, while others blanche them or leave them uncooked. Just make sure that you eat the raw noodles quickly, before they begin to sweat and fill your bowl with zucchini water. Now get to it with these recipes below.
