Zoodles Low Carb Recipe

What Are Zucchini Noodles

Zucchini noodles, also know as Zoodles, make any of your favourite pasta recipe low carb. To make zucchini noodles, simply spiralize zucchini into thin and long spiral stands usually by using a handheld spiralizer or with a stand mixer spiralizer attachment. You can also purchase store bought fresh zucchini noodles.

How to Prep Zoodles

I like to use bone broth with thisZoodles low carb recipe, but you can use chicken broth if that is easier for you. I recommend using a good quality parmesan cheese for this recipe. Thiscreamy zucchini pasta recipe calls for prosciutto, fried crispy. Be sure not to burn it for the maximum flavour. 

You will use 2 small avocados in thisrecipe with Zoodles. They should be ripe. If your avocados are still a little hard, you can speed up the process by placing them in a brown bag with an apple or a banana for a few days.
