If you haven't tried zucchini noodles yet, they are delicious, especially when paired with garlic, Parmesan cheese, and a touch of red pepper flakes. These are one of my absolute favorite side dishes and will quickly make you forget about the pasta you were craving and are a great low carb alternative to spaghetti squash. A girl can only eat so much spaghetti squash and zucchini noodles a really delicious option. Plus they make a great canvas for so many different dishes and work with almost any protein. In terms of preparing the zucchini noodles, you will need a spiralizer, mandolin, vegetable peeler, or a sharp knife and some patience. I prefer using the KitchenAid spiralizer or this one from Paderno. They both work great on all kind of veggies and are a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to lose weight or eat healthier. I use mine all the time for veggie noodles, salads, and even desserts with spiralized fruit.

I was sceptical about these, but they are very good! I used a mandolin to slice the zucchini lengthwise then cut them into strips. I omitted the red pepper flakes, they hurt my husbands stomach. I will define try be making these again!
