Yes, I hopped on the veggie noodle boat.

It’s a great boat, man.

I grew up on pasta. My shapes are proof. But sometimes, you just wanna be a bit healthier, ya know?

I ordered this spiralizer from amazon just before my parents came to visit. My mom brought it to Holland (along with some other goodies, like my Madeliene tin) and I haven’t looked back since.

There were fancier spiralizers out there. And I’ve found that this one’s only good for carrots, zucchini and cucumbers. But its a gem for what I paid, and we’ve been seeing this meal an awful lot around here.

The ‘noodles’ are raw. The pesto is raw.

      I’ve been hearing so much about these! Is it easy to learn how to use? Your pasta is beautiful and making me want to try one! (plus I am a sucker for gadgets :) ).

        Hey Ahu! It’s pretty easy to get the hang of, but this cheapy one is only good for softer veggies like zucchini and cucumber. I’ll occasionally throw in a carrot. If you’re looking to spiral potatoes, I’d reckon a heavier duty gadget. I think all foodies are kitchen gadget hoarders… I know I am :) Thanks for stopping by!
