Spiralizer – New Gadget

So a few posts back, I mentioned I picked up a ‘Spiralizer’ and my friend Kate was asking about it. So this post is for you Kate! This little machine is like magic when it comes to making zucchini noodles. Just slice off the ends, place in the machine and crank the handle. Simple as that. I got this from Bed, Bath and Beyond and it is the OXO Good Grips® Tabletop Spiralizer. It has worked really good so far.Once you start cranking the handle, oodles of noodles appear! I use 2 medium size zucchini’s when making pasta and that seems to work out pretty well.One thing to note – the noodles will be really long so I like to cut them into more manageable lengths, similar to a standard spaghetti noodle. For the pasta sauce – I used some trader Muir Glen Organic Pasta Sauce and doctored it up a bit. I browned 1/2 lb of hamburger along with a cup or so of pancetta. Drained the fat and added it to the sauce. I also add about 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes for a little heat. Now just toss in the Spiralized noodles, cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes and you are ready to eat!Top with a little parmesan cheese and enjoy. A delicious dinner minus the wheat! Next test – Spiralized potatoes. See you soon, Cheers!
