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.
To make your zucchini in pasta or noodle type, you can use various tools: a vegetable peeler or mandonline to make ribbons, a grater attachment for your food processor, or you can use my new favorite tool – a spiral cutter.
Here’s my Zucchini Pasta recipe. Make it soon!
Zucchini Pasta Recipe
- 6-8 zucchini squash
- salt and pepper to taste
- Cut zucchini squash into ribbons, spirals or julienne strips. Place into stock pot and cover with water plus about 1 inch. Bring zucchini water to a rapid boil. Remove from heat and pour zucchini through a strainer. Serve warm.

My favorite tool right now is my immersion blender
I love my lemon juicer, it gets every drop, and my micro plane I use it almost every day it seems.
I love spaghetti squash!!! I don’t remember when the last time I was trated to a tasty meal of this. Last time I had it, it was prepared similar to regular spaghetti. Your post has given me a hankering to have some in the near future.
Any Microplane zesting/grating tool, but especially the one that multitasks with different blades. The one that makes curly twists of lemon rinds for cocktails and garnishes is so much fun!
Would love to see a picture of the finished product 😉
I bought a vegetti after seeing your zucchini noodles. Cooked them as you instructed and then put parmesean cheese butter and salt and pepper. Yum yum!

Ur recipe doesn’t specify how long u boil???
That’s because there is no time. As soon as the water starts to boil they are done. That’s when you remove from heat and strain.
