Have you ever tried Zoodles?  They're zucchini noodles.

I was skeptical that they'd be delicious because I really love regular pasta.

I was extra skeptical when people claimed they really felt like they were eating pasta.

I picked up a pack of freshly spiralized zucchini noodles when I saw them marked down at my local grocery store.  I figured it was work the $2 gamble.

The package claims they can be eaten raw or cooked.  I opted to cook them.  I don't think I've ever eaten raw zucchini.

One of my very favorite meals is vegetable lo mein.  I love the noodles and the veggies.  I chopped tons of veggies, added in some soy sauce and olive oil.


snow peas
red, yellow and orange sweet peppers
green beans
soy sauce
olive oil

Saute the veggies in olive oil and soy sauce until they get some good color on them.  Add in the zoodles at the very end for 3 or 4 minutes.  Serve.

The zoodles were SO GOOD!!  This was the perfect lunch that reheated great the next day.

They definitely gave a noodley feel to the dish, but they don't taste just like pasta.  They were delicious and definitely a healthy substitute that tastes good with other veggies.  I'd highly recommend giving them a try.  I have yet to spiralize my own zucchini.  I am extra motivated to give that a try now that I know they're tasty.

Have you ever tried zoodles before?  What other veggies to you spiralize?


  1. YUM~ I love Zoodles! I eat them instead of pasta noodles with my spaghetti~

  2. I have never tried them before! This looks like a great way to eat them though. We are trying riced cauliflower in burrito bowls this week and I am nervous ;) xoxo ERIN

  3. This is a great idea! I have made them myself, but the last time I did that, they were a little bit watery - not something I dealt with before. I am sure it's more economical to make them yourself, but it's real handy to buy them at the store like that!

  4. We tried zoodles for the first time last year, and I fell in love. We're actually having them for dinner tonight!

  5. I would love to try them but only if I found them in my store like you did. I don't want to try something and not like it, plus I don't know about making my own. I love that there is another option than pasta though.

  6. I like zoodles ok, my husband definitely prefers them more than I do. Gimme all the pasta haha.


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
