Zucchini Noodles

I love zucchini noodles. They are light, fresh, and good for you! I use 1-2 medium zucchinis per person, depending on if you are making a side or main dish.

High in fiber, water, vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium, zucchini offers an  abundance of nutrients. Read more here.

There is a fancy spiraling tool you can use, but I don’t have one (yet) so I use a regular vegetable peeler.

Step 1 – Remove skin & using vegetable peeler, make long wide “noodles” from the flesh. Work around middle seeds.

Step 2 – Stack a few and slice into fettuccini size strips using a large butcher knife. Set to drain in a colander  while you prepare sauce of your choice (another post).

Step 3 – warm your favorite sauce (I typically make either a fresh marinara or  cashew cream “alfredo” sauce)

Step 4 – add noodles to sauce and continue cooking 1-2 mins until softened and warmed

Serve! YUM!!

UPDATE: I got a fancy new spiralizer tool and am now making gorgeous zucchini noodles just by running it thru the tool
