I have a new BF.

& it’s so right it’s wrong.

It all started with zucchini pasta.

Yup.

Vegetable pasta.

Really though: zucchini pasta > regular pasta.

Sahhhhhh sorry but it’s true.

If you’re looking for a pasta craving but don’t want the added cals/carbs, ‘The Sprializer‘ will make your day/year/life.

I bought my friend, Mike, ‘The Spiralizer‘ for Christmas because the machine + this recipe was recommended to me by a fellow recipe blogger.

Let’s just say: I’m dead x 10.

Because who doesn’t want pasta for dinner every night? ( Side note: it certainly helps that Mike’s an organic, amazing chef ).

Ya, it’s pretty much smooth sailing with this recipe.

And you as you all know I’m obsessed with QUICK & EASY!!! ESP when it comes to health.

Oh, sauce-wise: if you’re into spicy sauce, Rao’s Arrabbiata Sauce is seriously life changing.

Like, it’s better than sex.

Sooooo- lmk if you’re into this recipe & I’ll see what else I can whip up with my new, lil bestie, Mr. Spiralizer.

  • Zucchini pasta totally can be better than sex :) I spend more time with my spiralizer than with my….errr nevermind.

    So random that you’re sharing this recipe today as just 2 hours ago I was doing a live cook-a-long in which I demonstrated how to use a sprializer! Great minds think alike :)

  • Looks sooo good! Been thinking about buying that thing that makes it pasta, like the The Spiralizer. It’s the best alternative to pasta! And you can also do it with carrots, too! It tastes great! 😀
    Have a great day! :-)

  • I love zucchini! For the ones who’s yet to buy a spiralizer you can actually use a normal grater. It wont look AS good but it sure does taste heavenly :) x

  • Love this! I need a spiralizer ASAP! I used to have one in college and used to make carrot pasta too which is also yummy! Lots of Love C

    This morning I had this post in my bloglovin’ e-mail as well as an e-mail from Williams-Sonoma promoting spiralizers, must mean I need one! I looove pasta and could def eat it every night so this would be a great alternative to cut some carbs – thanks!

  • I love my spiralizer….it just lives in the biggest freaking box ever and takes up precious storage space….but it’s worth it when you realize all the calories and carbs you save when subbing it out over pasta.

  • I have been dying to try zoodle!! I love pasta, but gave up wheat so this is a perfect alternative!!

  • Thank you for the motivation to go purchase something like this. While I’ve toyed with spaghetti squash, it’s just not firm enough to satisfy my enormous pasta needs. I currently stick to whole wheat pasta, but would rather be putting veggies in my tummy. Zucchini it is. Now, where to store such a contraption in a shoe-box San Francisco kitchen?

  • You just blew my mind, can’t wait to try!

    A friend of mine opened a juice and raw food shop here in New Orleans, and she got me hooked to spiralizing veggies as pasta. I’ve also tried it with eggplant and sometimes do a mix of zuchinni and carrots. OBSESSED! OH! And with just carrots, don’t cook them after but add some fresh hummus. Best. Snack. Ever. For. Real!!

    • Yummmmmm! Doing this ASAP.

  • I love spiralized zucchini pasta! It means I can load up on a heavy meat sauce and even cheese without feeling guilty!

    This looks so good! Can’t wait to try it!!

  • Amanda

    I have this! Got it for $30 on Amazon.com and use it 2x per week usually. SO fantastic, filling, and delicious! You can also use it for doing fancy apple slices, carrots, whatever. Great tool.

  • Sam

    The spiralizer looks big and hard to clean- I use the Betty bossi brand veg twister- if you time it right, a percentage of the purchase goes to support breast cancer research. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=53vJjwIVCNE

  • Skinny and chic meal idea! I eat a lot os quash anyways and everyone loves pasta. Def making this for Sunday dinner.

  • Does the zucchini pasta taste like the Shirataki pasta? I’ve made the Shirataki pasta several times w/ different sauces and just can’t stand it :((

  • Thanks for the shout out – so glad you featured the spiralizer!!

  • I just got a spiralizer not too long ago and I’m obsessed. I love zucchini pasta. It’s also great ribbon style instead of spaghetti style. Try it! Oh, and Rao’s Arrabiata. Yeah. Amazing.

  • I got myself a spiralizer for Christmas. Best. Kitchen. Thing. Evah! I have zucchini pasta at least once a week! It’s so easy to make it’s ridiculous! I am going to try it with the red peppers though! Yum!

  • Flora

    If you fry the courgette pasta in cocunut oil it tastes amazing. Also homemade pesto with a torn mozerrella over the top is my favourite topping/sauce

  • Esther Bailey

    target $14.99. Love it!
