Zucchini Pasta Recipe

Zucchini Pasta? Really? Well, that’s what we call it around my house. You can also call it zucchini noodles, zoodles, zucchini spirals, or just plain zucchini if you like. Totally up to you. But, what I do implore you to do is to use it as a delicious pasta substitute. And soon!

You see, in my family, we’ve always used spaghetti squash if we were using something in place of regular pasta in recipes. But to be honest, I can’t stand the way that spaghetti squash feels in my mouth. I know. I’m weirder than weird. So many other people love it. But, believe me, once you use zucchini in a lightened up spaghetti recipe or other type of pasta dish, you will love, love, love it. Seriously.
