It’s no secret that I love love love Italian food. You remember that time I was in Tuscany? Culinary perfection but the souvenir weight gain was definitely less fun. In the last couple of years I reduced the amount of pasta I eat, mainly because I don’t feel that well after a carb-overdose but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a big bowl of spaghetti Bolognese once in a while.
Ever since I saw a picture of zucchini noodles on Pinterest, also called zoodles, I was so curious to try it out myself. I chose the spiralizer Vegan with a twist by Attila Hildmann which you can buy from the online-shop isda.ch It's such a great tool that comes with three different blades, a manual and some recipes for healthy, spiralized dishes.
So, does it really taste like spaghetti? I think with a great tomato or bolognese sauce, it comes pretty close! Asked my man how he feels about that, his response was that it was really tasty and all but that he cannot be tricked into it believing he's eating pasta. It was the same for him with a cauliflower pizza crust I did a while back. So I guess for me it works because I get to twirl my vegetables around my fork and eat something that gives me a feeling of eating my favorite dishes while being very low-carb and the feeling of having made a better choice is just priceless!
Have you tried spiralizing your vegetables? Give it a try, I’m sure you’ll love it!
