Zoodles with Paleo “Vodka” Sauce

Posted on by sorellapulita

Hey guys, Ellen here! Otherwise known as paleo pasta, zoodles (which is much more fun to say!) are a simple substitute to regular pasta. They are made from zucchini and are a great way to get more vegetables into your diet. You can pair zoodles with no sugar added regular marinara sauce or a paleo vodka sauce (recipe below). You can always slice up zucchini with a regular knife but to make proper zoodles, we recommend investing in a spiral slicer like the one pictured here. We’ve made paleo pasta with and without a spiral slicer and the spiral slicer is able to cut the zucchini thinner and more evenly which helps with consistency while cooking. Plus, it’s more fun to eat too!
