Oodles of Zucchini Noodles

I’ve been a spaghetti squash fan for years and it’s a great alternative to traditional noodles. You can top with your favorite homemade sauce and it’s just a delight.  I was missing Mom yesterday and remembered I had a container of her homemade pasta sauce in the freezer- bonus!  No matter how many times I make her recipe, I still can’t replicate the taste.

Knowing spaghetti squash would take too long to cook in the oven and I didn’t have it on hand, I used my veggie spiral cutter to create delicious thin noodles in minutes.

This is how I did it:

  1. Take one large zucchini (wash/dry)
  2. Select thick or thin (I chose thin)
  3. Place one end into the spiral cutter and start circulating to cut into a bowl
  4. Discard the core
  5. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute (I like mine a little crisp)
  6. Top with your favorite sauce and sprinkle fresh shaved Parmesan
