19 Zucchini Noodles Recipes


Before we get to the zoodles recipes, let's talk about how to make zucchini noodles.


Does Zucchini Pasta Taste Like Real Pasta?


No zoodles don't taste like pasta, and they aren't meant to taste like pasta.  They are a low carb alternative for those who want to enjoy a dish traditionally made with pasta with fewer carbs than using pasta.


Is it OK to Eat the Skin of a Zucchini?


Yes, you can eat the skin from a zucchini.  Just make sure that you wash the zucchini first.  The  skin has a lot of nutrients in it, so it's good to eat the skin of the zucchini.


However, if you have a zucchini that is very large, the skin can be bitter.  You can peel the zucchini if desired.


Should Zoodles be Cooked?


When you learn how to prepare zucchini noodles, you'll find that you don't always have to cook the zoodles.  Some recipes use raw zoodles, and others use a hot sauce over raw noodles that cooks the zucchini noodles recipe.
