I didn't peel my zucchini prior to making zoodles and they were delicious with the marinara. A perfect summertime meal served with garlic bread. Equally good topped with Parmesan or mozzarella. Read More

This was just ok. Waaaaay too much garlic; so much so that my wife couldn't even eat it. If I make this again I'd cut the garlic in half. I might also ever so slight boil the zucchini to make it a little less crunchy. Not my favorite spiralizing recipe. Read More

My first time spiralizing and it turned out great. I was surprised the marinara was so good, I'd never made a marina sauce before. The directions leave out the heating step. I added cooked chicken while it heated on the stove. Mushrooms would be good to add and so would green peppers. The second time I made this with ground beef. I'm not sure what I did differently with the sauce but it was very strong tomato-tasting so I added a tablespoon or two of Italian seasoning. Read More

What a fantastic recipe and a great summer go to. Simple and quick to make with no cooking involved! Heated sauce and steamed the zoodles in the microwave. Added Italian seasoning and meatballs to original recipe. Loved the zing from the balsamic. Very healthy and tasty dish. Read More
