Zucchini Noodle Blend

Tons of recipes call for zucchini noodles or zoodles.  I’ve tried them out with my family and they rejected them – darn it!  But I did not want to give up on them because they are so easy and healthy.

Here is my resolution…Mix 1/2 zucchini noodles + 1/2 spaghetti (I use gluten free pasta).  You still have to monitor your carbs and portion of pasta but you can have a bigger total portion and it tastes great.  No more complaints from my family!

Realistic Zucchini Noodle Blend:

  • Cook 1/2 – 1 box of Gluten Free or regular spaghetti according to directions on the box.  If using GF, make sure to rinse the pasta well afterwards.
  • Use zucchini spiralizer and make a similar portion of zucchini noodles.  For a 1/2 box of spaghetti, I usually spiralize 1 large zucchini.
  • Mix the warm pasta with the fresh zucchini noodles.  Add a few Tbsp of olive oil and some garlic salt as desired.  Toss well and
