Ever since buying my FAVORITE cooking gadget, the Inspiralizer I was hooked! I’ve been swapping pasta for zucchini noodles ever since. It’s the easiest way to make zucchini noodles, cucumber noodles, sweet potato spirals, spiralized beets and more! Prior to owning one, I used my mandolin but it’s so much quicker and easier (and safer) with this fun gadget – you NEED one!!

I took a break from zoodles for a few months because I may have over-did it this summer, but now that it’s January I dusted off my spiralizer and have been making them all week.

Tips on how to make perfect zucchini noodles:

  • Cut the noodles into 6 inch lengths so they are easier to eat.
  • Don’t cook the zucchini longer than 2 minutes or it will become watery. I usually cook it 1-1/2 minutes so they stay firm
    yet warm. You can even eat it raw, like in this awesome Raw Spiralized Zucchini Salad with Avocado and Edamame.

    Thank the seafood gods you did not sprinkle parmesan cheese on this deeluscious dish! I loved zoodles and NOW I love Shrimp Scampi.

  3. I’ve had this recipe for a while and hesitated to make it, my experience with zoodles wasn’t great. I’m sooooo happy I made it. Absolutely freakin delicious!!! I came close to licking the plate. Seriously good and easy!!

  4. Loved this! I had several large zucchinis left from my local farmer’s market, and this was the perfect way to use them. Absolutely delicious! I will definitely make this again. Thank you!

  5. I have eliminated the watery problem with spiralized zucchini. After cutting it, I lay it out on trays lined with cotton tea towels, or paper towels. I leave it all day, or overnight. If the towels get quite wet I change them once mid way. I make quite a bit because it’s quick and easy to do so, and stored in bags it will last more than a week. No more watery recipes.
    Scampi is my favorite! This recipe has everything going for it, low points, fresh wonderful taste and ease. Thanks

    I’m making; this for the second time. Flavor is really good and since I don’t eat hot or spicy foods, it had just enough kick. My guy doesn’t like zucchini, but he does like Zoodles…I probably won’t tell him what it is!
