Some of my favorite dishes are made with pasta noodles. The unfortunate part is that noodles are full of heavy carbohydrates, which my hips, tummy, and thighs don’t agree with! Then I discovered one of the greatest kitchen gadget inventions ever, the spiralizer! The spiralizer turns any of your favorite firm veggies into Zoodles (noodles)! Here are some yummy, healthy, recipes to try out with the spiralizer.
