I finally did it!  I made vegetable noodles.

The sound of zucchini pasta or zoodles as they are also know, didn’t really have me running to the kitchen to whip up a batch.  Yes, I may have judged the humble zucchini noodle harshly. I may have thought zucchini pasta would be tasteless and a bit silly.

Now all I can say, why-o-why did I wait so long?

Zucchini noodle so simple, easy, healthy and darn good.  Totally my jam!  Soon to be yours too!

You can make your noodles using a mandolin, slicing thinly and then slicing a second time.  You can use a hand-held spiralizer {I found one for $5.00 at my grocery store} which is as simple as shoving the vegetable in through the hole and twisting as you go. or you can buy a Veggie Pro Spiral Slicer, which is by far the easiest to use, but a bit more expensive.

You are going to love how fun and easy it is to cook with zucchini noodles.  The avocado sauce is pretty darn awesome on top of these shrimp and noodles.
