Eating low carb is a lifestyle choice for many people now. Whether it is to lose weight or to just avoid the inflammation that can arise from eating things like gluten, the low carb meal is here to stay. “Zoodles” are a popular substitute for regular pasta like in this Zucchini Noodles with Arrabbiata Sauce. Or, if you like to sound more exotic, tell everyone you are eating Zucchini Tagliatelle con Arrabbiata!
The Tool Needed to Make Zucchini Noodles
The key piece of equipment you need to make zucchini noodles (aka ‘zoodles’) is a spiralizer.
There are many options out there for you to purchase. I reviewed the Brieftons 5-Blade Spiralizer this past year. I found it worked great for the softer vegetables I pushed through it. Once you get the hang of it, you can be creating those vegetable noodles in no time!
Some companies like KitchenAid offer an attachment. However, many of the freestanding ones work just as well for less money. This sentiment was also shared with me by a few chefs.
There are many models available, but some are just created better than others. Below are a few, including the one I own, which have high ratings on Amazon.
