Zoodles with Eggplant Tomato Sauce


My first zoodles!

I wanted to make zoodles for a long time, so I was so excited.


A friend of ours brought us this huge zucchini from his garden and I though it would be perfect.

This was large but it was firm and very fresh.

Just the way I like it.


I always thought I needed the special device to make zoodles, but then I saw other people simply using a peeler to make wide noodles.

So I thought I would try that.

Then, I realized that I didn’t even have a peeler, so I used a mandoline.

I was a bit nervous, but I think it worked perfectly fine.


And I thought this roasted eggplant tomato sauce from Trader joe’s would be perfect to serve my first zoodles with.


I’m a big noodle fan, and I was intrigued by the veggie noodle concept, but I was also a bit skeptical.

I wasn’t sure if it could really satisfy a noodle lover.


Well, now I’m convinced!

This was absolutely delicious and I really loved the zoodles.

It definitely felt like noodles to me and the unique lightness was wonderful.

I’m sure I’ll be making zoodles a lot this summer.
