I love zucchini squash! It is a super versatile vegetable: we can use it to prepare lasagnas, salads, pizzas, side dishes, sauces and this amazing Zucchini Spaghetti Recipe. It can also be called “zoodle” (zucchini noodle… hehehe).
I’m excited about this recipe because it is easy (you only need a Julienne peeler) and zucchini is a low-carb and low-calorie vegetable (around 33 calories in a medium size zucchini). In other words, it is super light and weight-loss friendly.
In my opinion it is a perfect option for dinner. You can prepare a sauce rich in protein and combine with this delicious “zoodle”. In addition, the texture is great. It really seems like an al dente spaghetti.
Zucchini Spaghetti Recipe – You’re gonna need:
– 1 zucchini medium size
– salt and pepper to taste
– a Julienne peeler (or any other peeler that can cut strips, like a humble box grater)
Zucchini Spaghetti Recipe – How to prepare:
Wash the zucchini and then simply run the Julienne peeler along it to create perfect uniform strips. Light pressure is all that is required because the blade will do the bulk of the work.
Your spaghetti is almost ready! Now you just have to season it with a little bit salt and pepper (carefully) and put it in the microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds.
Taaaaa daaaa! Your homemade Zucchini Spaghetti is ready! I served it with ground beef sauce … but I think it matches perfectly with bolognese sauce, chicken sauce, pesto, etc.
