15 Healthy Dinners to Start 2015: Oodles of Zoodles

17372676689_414cb7a33f_zDinner #3 in my “15 Healthy Dinners to Start 2015” series is all about zoodles: noodles made from zucchinis. To make them, you need a “zoodler” like shown above – you can get them for under $10 on Amazon.

Making zoodles is pretty simple – you put a zucchini per person through the zoodler, then boil for about 3 minutes, until they reach desired doneness. Then you can top with whatever you like – we used ground pork and marinara sauce, but you could just as easily top with pesto or a primavera sauce.

One word of warning – this is not what I would call a “husband approved” dinner.  The hubby ate it, but followed it up with this Facebook comment:


So, I guess, take this one with a grain of salt.  But if you need a super-low calorie, low-carb meal that’s easy to make and filling; go zoodles or bust.
