A while back I got a spiralizer. For some reason, I hadn’t used it yet. Until now. I made this zucchini pasta. I’m so glad I did. The spiralizer is super easy to use and it’s priced very well. It makes great low carb noodles. This zucchini pasta with avocado pesto is delicious and low carb! To get the Paderno Spiralizer, click here.
This whole meal literally took me 10 minutes to make! Great for those busy days when you have little time to cook dinner. Perfect for those hot days in the summer where you don’t want to be slaving over a hot stove. You could top this with your favorite protein to make it complete. Another quick meal on my blog is my Pesto Portobellos.
You can learn how to use the spiralizer by watching this short video.
