Oodles of Noodles

This blog is not for those who are "Carb loading"- so if that applies to you, you might as well get your running shoes on and go for your  run. Since I am carbohydrate intolerant I don't get to have pasta, rice or potatoes except on the very rate occasion and only if it is under certain conditions. Actually, to be honest, I pretty much stay away from them, they are not worth the discomfort when I do eat them. I will get my running shoes and run later, sans my wheat noodle,s but satisfied nonetheless.

For those of us who are cutting out white carbs but still love spaghetti sauce, here is a solution for you.

Step 1: Slice your zucchini into strips and lay then flat on your cutting board.
 Step 2: Use a sharp peeler to cut noodles. The thicker your slices of zucchini, the wider your noodles will be. If you are picky, keep them the same size.  Step 3: Steam them in a wire basket until still firm but done.

As easy as that and delicious! Here are some serving suggestions:

 Tilapia, sauteed veggies, steamed cauliflower and zucchini noodles.

Spaghetti sauce made with ground chicken or turkey is always a good option. Choose the unsalted tomatoes in a can if you don't have fresh Romano tomatoes.

Try it!

  1. Oh wonderful! Kevin and I have cut out gluten from our diet, but we miss spaghetti so much! Can't wait to try this!

  2. I love these noodles, I am putting a mandolin sliver on my wishlist, that should make awesome noodles, but in the meantime, the peeler does the trick!
