Zucchini Noodles

While I love to cook and try new recipes and new techniques I am not one of those people who run right out and buy the newest gadgetry or feel the need to try out a new fad food. However, when I started seeing endless recipes calling for vegetable noodles, especially zucchini noodles, I had to find out how to do this.

On an occasion where I was shopping with my mother I happened upon a spiral vegetable cutter; a Vegetti. I told Mother what it did, and she was intrigued. We purchased one.

Unfortunately, there was no zucchini at home that night. I made sure to pick some up at the store the following day so I could try my new gadget.

According to the package directions I could boil the noodles, microwave the noodles, or sauté the noodles. I chose the sauté method. My first thought was to only serve the zucchini noodles. On second thought I decided to make regular spaghetti, too. I’m glad I did. I personally enjoyed the zucchini noodles with the marinara. The Hubs thought the zucchini noodles a la Vegetti were good…as a side dish. He did not think they would be a good replacement for the pasta. Daughter Number Four was good with the regular or the zucchini, but Daughter Number Three was NOT having it.

I will definitely have to try using other types of vegetables in my Vegetti. Also I will find other ways of cooking the zucchini noodles.

Overall I think using this gadget was a huge success. 3 out of 4 people at my dinner table enjoyed the zucchini noodles – and no one would have expected Daughter Number Three to have liked them.

Whether you buy a Vegetti or use a peeler or some other gadget to create your own vegetable noodles, I highly recommend you try!

    I keep seeing those veggie noodles, too – You’ll have to let me know how the next one goes, too – and I wonder if they could be combined with regular noddles? A good way to “hide” veggies in the meal!

      Now that I have the Vegetti, I’ll definitely be trying lots of different “noodles”! Of course, I will be sharing my adventures in Veggie Noodles!

    Those noodles look delicious, I would totally eat them! There’s a recipe for Zucchini Noodles Alfredo that I just adore, and would make every week if it weren’t for the high-fat deliciousness. It came from Suzanne Somers, did you ever hear of her special diet, many years ago? Something about separating fat and carbs but eating as much as you wanted of them. Don’t know how well that worked out for her.

      I do remember hearing about that diet plan. I like my carbs and fat together! 🙂
      It is going to be a fun little tool!
