I had to join the craze. I had to” spiralize”. It’s a disease. But it’s a fun disease! Being in the “noodle” business, there’s nothing more exciting than discovering new noodles! There have been umpteen recipes and examples of spiralized veggies all over the internet and foodie catalogs in the past few months. I had to understand what was happening! And since “noodles” are involved, it was really my duty. 🙂

When spiralizing, you choose a blade size to achieve the thickness of the noodles for your dish.  I used the medium sized blade.  After you read this recipe for Zucchini Noodles with White Wine Sauce, I hope you add some sort of spiralizing “contraption” to your holiday wish list.  I ordered my Paderno from Amazon.  You’ll be thrilled, although your family may begin to resent any food with a curly shape…even fries! But until then, spiralize everything in sight!  A good resource for all things spiralized is Ali Maffucci’s blog and cookbook, Insprialized.  I bought her cookbook which is loaded with great ideas and would make a great gift this holiday season.

First of all, I decided to spiralize both zucchini and squash. Together they make a beautiful and healthy combination. Since I wanted to add some sautéed onion, I thought, “Why not?” So I spiralized the onion too…believe me, you’ll understand more once you get your hands on this little machine!

When you choose the vegetables to spiralize, the thicker, the larger, the better. The larger veggies make their way through the blades easier and make for longer noodles. In fact, some of my noodles were so long, that I decided to cut them in half.

Wait a minute, you‘ve done that before. Breaking up the spaghetti noodles before throwing them in the boiling water?! When you are the cook, and in your kitchen (headquarters), you can do whatever you want. Amen!

Once your veggies are spiralized, you just pan sauté them for a few minutes with some onion and seasonings, add some wine and butter, and Voila! You have just created a fabulous healthy main course….or a wonderful side dish to seared steaks, grilled chicken, pan sautéed fish, etc. The colors, the curls, and the texture will add exactly what you need to brighten up your plate. Not to mention this dish is low cal, low carb, and gluten free!

I added lots of fresh Parmesan and my kids really ate this up in a hurry! I hid the fact they were “veggies” for a few minutes and it was amazing how close they actually taste to “real” noodles. Of course, NOTHING replaces real noodles…but that’s just the noodle snob in me speaking. 🙂

Honestly, I welcome these new veggie noodles into the noodle family and hope to share more ways to enjoy them! Next on my list to try is Zoodle Pasta Pie, from Marie’s Proud Italian Cook blog.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.  Looks fab!  Until then, Spiralize-On my friends! And please share any noodle recipes as you do!

    We love to spiralize, too! This is so tasty!

  2. Cathe ATL on May 31, 2018 at 6:46 pm

    This is a GREAT recipe but I suggest cooking the tomatoes for a good 10 minutes, shaking the pan often. This way the tomatoes roast up and break open. Then add the onions and sauté them then do the rest of the recipe. The roasted and “exploded” tomatoes are amazing

    • carey on June 1, 2018 at 12:03 pm

      Good suggestion! Thanks for commenting…

  3. Lois on April 9, 2016 at 7:02 pm

    Really enjoyed this. I didn’t have cherry tomatoes and so I used 1/2 of a beautiful organic tomato I had instead. I also skipped the fresh parsley since I didn’t have any. We thought it was really delicious even with those substitutions and omissions and I will make it again. Thanks!

    • carey on April 9, 2016 at 10:57 pm

      So glad you liked it! Great idea on the organic tomatoes…appreciate you letting me know! Stay tuned soon for some more zucchini noodle recipes!

    This is great for when I entertain my vegetarian friends. They’ll love this!

  24. Christina Oster on November 18, 2015 at 6:21 am

    Maybe ZucchiniNoodles will “squash” their competitor: spaghetti squash !

    • Michaelann h. on May 9, 2016 at 2:11 pm

      Zucchini noodles are way better than spaghetti squash as a matter of fact I personally think spaghetti squash is horrible. Zucchini and yellow squash imo are amazing.

  25. Alina Hahn on November 18, 2015 at 6:19 am

    Yum! I love that it is gluten free!

  26. Crystal Shuler on November 18, 2015 at 6:09 am
