Zucchini Pasta has been a hot topic in our Low Carb Challenge group on Facebook lately. (That photo was taken by Emily Drew, who helps me moderate the group.)
The big question is How to Shred Zucchini Pasta easily for fun low-carb meals and side dishes. There are two easy ways!
The easiest, safest and most popular option is to use a Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer which ranks #1 on Amazon in Kitchen & Housewares. It’s only #34.81 with FREE shipping.
This handy little gadget makes the coolest looking Zucchini Pasta ever – as you can see from Kim and Emily’s photos.
You can also shred cabbage, make beautiful garnishments, create cucumber swirls to jazz up your salads, and… well, the ideas are endless!
Kim (also a member of our Facebook Group) said:
“Shred Zucchini Pasta in SECONDS!!!! You really will think you are eating a big bowl of pasta except you feel totally healthy and good after!
So you have super cool “Zoodles” aka Zucchini Pasta… now what?
Kim said: “I saute them in olive oil, garlic powder, salt & pepper until they get a little cooked down, then I use Rao’s marinara and simmer it down for about 15 minutes. A little parm and YUM! I have also made a homemade meat sauce with my zoodles. So many possibilities….”
Emily said: “My favorite so far is a Scampi White Wine Sauce with Low Carb Wine. You only need a 1/4 cup wine for the whole dish which serves six. I also like the idea of trying it with pesto and a cream sauce.”
Those are just a couple of ideas I’ve seen in our Low Carb Group lately. Obviously you can replace the pasta in any recipe with your new “Zoodles!”
Oh, and I mentioned a second option… Personally I would prefer to use the inexpensive spiral slicer, because it has SO many uses and creates such a beautiful end result – and we do want our dishes to be gorgeous, right?! I love food art.
But here’s another idea you can try too from the Top With Cinnamon blog:
That looks a little scary!
Here is another fun “Zoodle” photo from our Low Carb Facebook Group…
