Zucchini Pasta Maker
Turning vegetables into noodles is a pretty awesome thing. I have a zucchini pasta maker which can turn all sorts of vegetables into pasta. I use the Paderno Spiral Veggie noodle maker to turn the veggies into noodles aka my ‘zucchini pasta maker’.
Directions on how to make yummy zucchini noodles with your zucchini pasta maker:
1. Clean the squash/zucchinis and trim off the ends
2. Affix to the zucchini pasta maker and use as directed
3. Saute noodles until tender with pesto or sauce of choice
And that’s it! Super simple and honestly it’s pretty fun, too.
While sauteing, sample every other minute until you get your desired texture. Everyone’s preference is different, hence why I didn’t provide a cook time.
I personally love the zucchini noodles with pesto sauce (but I am not fond of tomato based sauce due to the acidity). Use different colored zucchinis and squash to have a more brightly colored presentation. The zucchini noodles make a great side, especially for a lighter meal such as fish.
You can also use this nifty gadget to turn all sorts of vegetables into noodles (see some of my other vegetable noodle creations in the side bar). Here is a video I made of the gadget while I used it to make turnip and carrot noodles.
