Zucchini noodles, also known as zoodles, are a great way to get your pasta fix without all the carbs. The easiest way to make zucchini noodles is with a spiralizer; my spiralizer comes with different blades to make zoodles that are thin, medium and thick. Zoodles are best when raw or just barely cooked; if you cook them too long they might get mushy.
If you don’t have a spiralizer and don’t care to purchase one, you can use a vegetable peeler to shave long strands off whole zucchini to make your own “noodles”.
I’ve collected an assortment of quick and easy zucchini noodle recipes – there’s everything from shrimp dishes to meal prep ideas and more! So many zoodle recipes to try, so little time! What’s your favorite way to eat zucchini noodles?
