I love zucchini noodles and I eat them all the time. To be honest, I make my family pasta and I eat the zoodles (zucchini noodles ) as I haven’t won them over yet. Anyway, I was in the mood for a good creamy sauce for my zucchini noodles when I remembered that many low carb recipes use cream cheese to make sauces and though I’d give it a try. I had some fresh basil and sun dried tomatoes that I had frozen and I whipped up these creamy sun dried tomato & basil zucchini noodles and in just 15 minutes!
How to make zucchini noodles
This is a quick post today. If you are familiar with zucchini noodles just make them how you always do. I have a spiralizer and hand peeler that makes veggie noodles. A spiralizer makes veggie noodles very easy but you can always use a regular potato peeler and just make wider noodles. But if you have a spiralizer, you want to make a thicker spaghetti sized noodle.
