The “zoodle” (zucchini noodle) is a great low carb alternative for everyones favorite pasta dishes.
Zoodles are my go-to while doing Whole30 and Keto and are still a staple I have implemented into my weekly diet when looking for low-carb options. You can use this recipe as a base for any recipe where pasta is usually used. Top with alfredo or marinara and pair with ground turkey or chicken.

2 tbsp olive oil
1tsp minced garlic
salt to taste
pepper to taste
cut off the ends of the zucchini
spiral zucchini using a vegetable spiralizer
Heat pan over medium heat and coat pan with oil
Add zucchini , garlic and spices
Cook while stirring frequently until zoodles are soft.
