If you are looking for a low carb alternative to your favorite pasta dishes, look no further than Zoodles, or Zucchini-Noodles. In order to make zoodles, you’ll need a zucchini (or two, depending on how large they are), and a vegetable spiralizer!
Zoodles have a 3-5 minute cook time, and you can throw them right in the same pan in which you are cooking your sauce. Get ready to say hello to a quick and easy meal that makes less of a mess than normal pasta! Try this recipe, below:
- 1 or 2 Zuchinni (spiralized into zoodles)
- Heirloom tomato, sliced
- Onion, chopped
- Shallot, chopped
- Garlic, minced
- Olive (or coconut) Oil
- Whatever vegetables you like! (mushroom, peppers, broccoli, etc)
- Salt and Pepper (Red Pepper flakes), to taste
Begin a light saute on your onion and shallot in the olive/coconut oil. When the onions begin to brown, introduce the minced garlic and the other vegetables you want to include in your primavera. As the vegetables cook down, add the sliced heirloom tomatoes, and cook until the tomatoes soften. Add your zoodles, mix continuously for 3-5 minutes and season to taste. Serve immediately and enjoy!
