zucchini pasta for my low carb friends

zucchini pastaIn my post about buying a griddle I mentioned how much I like kitchen appliances and gadgets; the spiralizer is one of those. This one is really cool, it’s technically called a spiral vegetable slicer but spiralizer sounds better. You can do so many things with it, in fact, there’s an entire blog/website dedicated to it (Inspiralized is the site, check it out it has some great recipe ideas). Zucchini is definitely the “go-to” veggie but you can use it with potatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and squash. It comes with 3 blades; one makes “ribbons” and the other two make noodles (for thin and thick noodles).

If you are looking for a low carb meal, this one is pretty yummy and low carb friendly. No real recipe here, I just used the spiralizer on a zucchini and heated up some store bought tomato and basil sauce and added ground turkey to make it meaty. This was super easy to make, it took about 5 minutes. The zucchini is not cooked but you can if you want, I prefer mines raw.

This is what the spiralizer looks like and you can get it from Amazon for about $20-30. What’s your favorite kitchen appliance and/or gadget?
