I’ve been seeing this pasta alternative Zucchini Noodles on a couple of other food sites and had to try it. But first, I had to find the tool. It’s called a julienne peeler and I found mine at Bed Bath & Beyond. It looks like this:
Like spaghetti squash, it doesn’t taste exactly like pasta, but it is a healthy side dish that’s a really good gluten-free, low-carb substitute. And once you season it and eat it with your protein, you’ll forget that it’s not real pasta. Well, maybe you will, but you’ll feel good after eating zucchini and your body will thank you.
How to Cook
- Wash your zucchini and shred noodles using your julienne peeler.
- Blanch in boiling water for 1-2 minutes. Drain.
- Drizzle with olive oil or butter, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if you wish.
