So I finally started using a gift I had gotten for my wedding (many months ago, now... which is crazy to think!). It was something that I was excited about, but thought would require extra time to figure out.
It was none other than... a veggie spiralizer! I buckled down and decided to give it a shot.
Friends... it's literally the easiest thing ever. I'd been using spaghetti squash for all of my veggie pasta alternatives. Though I still love spaghetti squash, this takes way less time and is so much easier.
They take 5-7 minutes to cook, and they can be used for anything! You can cook a bunch of zoodles to be used to replace pasta or rice. It's super tasty with pretty much any pasta sauce, and it offers THAT much more nutrition in your meal.
Since my discovery of how easy it is to use this contraption, I've been making different dishes with it. Two are photographed here:
