ZOODLES….Zucchini Noodles…The answer for all you spaghetti and mealballs lovers.
Zucchini noodles are the perfect replacement for high-carb pasta, essentially you are replacing carbs for another portion of vegetables. This alternative is extremely nutritious and great for cutting up!
1-2 Zucchini (or summer squash), per person
A julienne peeler
• Use firm strokes as you peel the zucchini lengthwise with the julienne peeler. Do one side until you reach the seeds, rotate and peel other side.
• Add zucchini noodles and boil for only about 30-60seconds.
• Drain noodles and add your sauce and toppings.
NB: to see if the noodles are cooked enough, they should be firm but not crunchy or mushy.
