Zucchini noodles are also known as zoodles. They are a great way to get your pasta fix without all the carbs. In this recipe we have also used sweet potatoes to add some crunch, you can add whatever vegetable you like, carrot, beets and pumpkin. The easiest way to make zucchini noodles is with a spiralizer; my spiralizer comes with different blades to make zoodles that are thin, medium and thick. Zoodles are best when raw or just barely cooked; if you cook them too long they can become mushy.
