Zoodles!!!!!!  I know everyone’s been talking about them, but I’m usually a little slow on the new stuff, and as usually, I wonder why I waited sooooo long.  This recipe is great, because it’s fast, easy, low cal and soooo simple to make.  It’s great for a fast week day night or for a little elegant lunch for friends.

 

I used a mandolin to make my zoodles, which tends to scare me a little, since the last time I used it, I lost a little skin off one of my fingers.   Needless to say,  it’s been in storage for a little while.  If you don’t have a mandolin or want to keep your skin intact, you could use a spiralizer or use a vegetable peeler and do ribbons instead of zoodles.

 

I used one large zucchini, because I wasn’t sure how we’d like it so I opted to make a smaller recipe, but next time I’m going all out and make a lot!

 

Start by getting your zucchini ready, spiralize/mandolin/ribbon your zucchini.  I left the seeds and didn’t use those
