Z: Zoodles

Subbing zucchini noodles, or “zoodles,” for pasta is a great way to cut carbs or just add more veggies to your diet. It’s also pretty easy to do with a spiralizer, though many grocery stores have them pre-made for you in the produce section.

There are many way you can cook your zoodles. This recipe is great as either a side or the entree. You can also use a mixture of green zucchini and yellow summer squash to give the dish more color.
