Courgette Noodles or Zoodles

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.

So if you do not know what zoodles are then it is zucchini (courgettes) sliced into thin strips using knife, can use zucchini spiralizer, or julienne peeler even.
Also known as ‘zoodles’, can replace spaghetti for a lower-carb and gluten-free meal. Serve with your favorite pasta sauce. They approximate the sense of pasta in that they’re roughly the same shape, they don’t have a lot of flavor on their own and they serve as a fantastic vehicle for “sauce” and other goodies. Once you’ve got your cooked zoodles, top them with any number of sauces. I was surprised at how the texture and appearance of the zucchini resembled actual pasta.
While at university sometimes I need a quick inexpensive meal and this is perfect it too has all the right nutrients I need to keep me feeling great.
Here are some pictures of my creations.
If you want to know recipes or the ingredients I compile to make this ask or check out my instagram (jbaker323)
I use Quorn range when I wanted to keep it vegetarian (add Quorn chicken piece or Quorn mince). However adding chicken or mince does give it some richness. Can experiment with your taste buds and try different spices. Can top it off with some Parmesan to make it really like spaghetti bolognese. The spectrum is huge for variety.
