Alright I got a recipe for y’all. I have been trying to cut back on the carbs at night so I’ve been on a mission to find as many sub and dupe recipes that I can. Every since the cauliflower mashed potato incident of 2013 a certain somebody will not go near my “healthier version” cooking no matter how tasty it really is. So when that certain somebody had a late softball game I got to hauling out the ole spiralizer and getting to work.
This is one of my high protein low carb favs Zucchini Noodles with Meat Sauce. First when picking your Zucchini’s for your spiralizer you have to be picky. Look for the straightest and longest ones you can find………I’ll let you think that one over for a second.
The reason being when they are straight they spin so much better on the spiralizer.
Here is the Spiralizer that I use (Amazon naturally). Don’t use the hand held shenanigans. It doesn’t work. This bad boy takes up precious real estate in my storage laundry room but it is worth it.
You will need two pans, one for the noodles and one for the meat. Get your sauce simmering and get to making your noodles.
I used the smallest blade attachment that it comes with. Chop off both ends and then place one end into the grated side and the other into the blade. Then just crank the handle.
Out comes beautiful noodles.
Sauté those bad boys up with a tiny bit of olive oil, salt and pepper for about 2-3 minutes. Then I browned up some ground turkey. Seasoned the heck out of it because let’s be honest ground turkey really doesn’t have much flavor.
Spoon the ground turkey over the noodles with some sauce and a tiny sprinkle of cheese and voila you have a carb conscious filling meal plus leftovers for lunch if your male counterpart doesn’t particularly care for zoodles. I think they are delicious and someone is missing out ;-)
There you have it! Have you made zucchini noodles like that before? They reheat the next day perfectly! This is definitely going to be on repeat for the next few months that is for sure! xoxoxo
