First, let's talk about the zucchini. Zucchini serves as an excellent source of vitamin C. A water-soluble antioxidant, vitamin C dissolves in your body fluids and protects your cells from free radicals, which are highly reactive compounds that oxidize your DNA, lipids and proteins, causing cellular damage. Getting enough vitamin C in your diet also aids in nerve cell communication, and helps your body metabolize cholesterol and keeps your tissues strong! It's so much better for you than normal pasta.
I purchased this little gadget (below) called the Veggetti. I wasn't sure how it would work, but I'm very pleased with the purchase. It was well-priced, easy to use, and easy to clean!
Within a few seconds (seriously, not even minutes), I had my zucchini noodles warming on the stove with a little minced garlic & a bit of olive oil. I topped it off with a bit of tomato sauce for my son since he seems peculiarly attracted to tomato sauces hahaha. I've added other veggies to it, and once I made a creamy cauliflower sauce. I think next time, I'll try an asian noodle dish.
Any other zucchini fans out there??
