Use Your Zoodle: 3 Italian-Inspired Squash Recipes

By: KC Cibran

If you’re craving a hearty pasta but don’t want to weigh yourself down with a bowl of carbs, transform your favorite Italian dishes with spiralized zucchini noodles — aka zoodles — instead.

No spiralizer? No problem. Use a vegetable peeler to make thick zucchini noodles mixed in a homemade pesto sauce, or use the original zoodle — yellow spaghetti squash — to make a colorful spaghetti squash primavera.

Watch the video below for these Italian-inspired squash recipes and more.
