If there’s one thing in my kitchen that has stolen my heart lately, it’s my spiralizer. If you’re on a diet, have weight loss goals or just love getting the most nutrients out of your meals and you have placed pasta on the “no list”, the spiralizer just might be your saving grace. By making your noodles with veggies, you can bring some of your favorite dishes back. “Zoodles,” as they are commonly known, are on my weekly menu at least once every week and I’m always changing up the sauce and toppings. I can’t get enough of them, and I’ve even started to experiment with sweet potato noodles too (hello, heaven). If you’re ready to start adding more Zoodles to your life, try any or all of the our favorite zucchini noodle recipes.
