Have you heard of Zoodles? They're noodles made from Zucchini. And they're actually pretty amazing! You cut the zucchini with a kitchen tool called a Spiral Cutter. The one we use at home is Useful Tri-Blade and it's available on Amazon for under $20. There are many more different cutters out there to pick from as well but Tri-Blade had good reviews so we decided to try and we're happy with it so far.

So let's get to the recipes!
1. Kung Pao Chicken Zoodles For Two
You can enjoy these Kung Pao Noodles without the guilt (under 300 calories), because I replaced the noodles with zoodles (zucchini noodles) and the results were fantastic!!
Each bowl is filled with chicken and vegetables and the sauce has the flavor combination of of salty, sweet, sour, and spicy flavors. Topped with crushed peanuts – it's pretty hard to pass this up!
2. Zucchini Noodles with Pesto
I think you will love this zucchini recipe, Zucchini Noodles with Pesto. It only takes 15 minutes to make and there is no cooking involved!
3. Zucchini Shrimp Scampi
Traditional shrimp scampi made into a low-carb dish with zucchini noodles. It’s unbelievably easy, quick & healthy! 214.3 calories.
4. Paleo Low Carb Carbonara
5. Greek Salad Zoodles
Fresh, light, and healthy, with juicy tomatoes, briny olives, crumbly feta cheese, and a light lemon and oregano dressing, all the flavors of the Mediterranean!
6. Zoodles Pad Thai
The best part about this Zucchini Pasta Pad Thai is that you can add what ever protein you want. We like to have our zucchini noodle a little on the crunchy side, so we like to cook the zucchini first, then let the water drain from the noodles before serving. The water that's released from the noodles won't water down any sauce or flavor in the zoodle recipe.
7. Zoodles and Turkey Meatballs
For all the spaghetti and meatball lovers out there, you won't believe how good this is!
8. Chicken Kale Zoodle Soup
This chicken “noodle” soup gets a lightened up make over by skipping the spaghetti and making zucchini noodles instead! This is low carb, gluten free and also a super fast meal made in under 30 minutes!
