Zucchini & Squash 'Noodles' with Pesto Sauce June 24 2014, 0 Comments


I love pasta but I am definitely not a fan of all the carbohydrates and calories it contains. If you liked the spaghetti squash, then you'll love the veggie noodles! This recipe is hard to make if you don't have a vegetable spiralizer, so I highly recommend purchasing the Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Cutter from Bed Bath and Beyond. It's only $14.99 and is super easy to use plus it creates the perfect noodles. I added a delicious pesto sauce to the noodles, but a simple tomato pasta sauce is also perfect to use and tastes incredible. You can add a protein to this dish or serve it all by itself! Enjoy!
