Zucchini Noodle Spaghetti


I made a great low-carb recipe the other day for lunch.  It was quick, easy, and tasty!

Here’s what I did:

I took my hand-held, inexpensive, veggie noodle maker and twisted a zucchini through the wider side.  I wanted some “noodles” that were thicker, so they would not mush up on me.

I put a little butter in a frying pan, melted it, then added the “noodles” and sprinkled it liberally with garlic-salt.  The kind I use is a grinder, so I twisted the top several times to get a good amount of garlic and salt on the “noodles.”  Then I cooked the zucchini noodles for about 3 minutes, stirring only when necessary because I didn’t want to break them up.


In the meanwhile, I took 3 of the meatballs I had made the other day and warmed them in the microwave with a little marinara sauce.

I put the meatballs and sauce on the zucchini noodles, sprinkled it with Parmesan cheese (more than I intended since a lump came rushing out), and enjoyed my lunch very much.

  1. Your “creation” looks delicious!! And so healthy too. I just threw out some zucchini seeds into my garlic patch, so if they grow I will have to try this. Andrea

    1. It tasted great. Some other times when I have made zucchini noodles, I’ve either cut them too thin, or overcooked them, or both:) This time they came out perfect. I am also looking forward to growing zucchini when the time is here. I’m glad you got your seeds in already!

  2. Looks so good.. I like the idea of frying the noodles/squash , instead of boiling.. [Preventing them from getting mushy].. I had wondered if the cheap veggie noodle maker would work? Saw one at wal mart.. I am going to buy me one.. thanks for sharing. Proud you had a good lunch.. yummy.

    Sorry I have not visited your blog lately.. Have been sick … and busy doctor going.ha Have a blessed day.

    1. I hope you are feeling better now. So much yuck going around!

      I will say the cheap hand-held ones do work, but you do have to be careful. You can cut yourself on the blades and you do lose a little bit of zucchini that you cannot twist–you can always chop it up. I haven’t tried it on hard things like carrots.
