I don’t know about you but there’s something so satisfying about a big plate of fresh spaghetti pasta. I tend to stay away from the white or whole-wheat options, instead I choose either brown rice or in this case “zoodles” aka zucchini noodles for those of you who don’t speak Foodie haha! I’ve been spiralizing veggies for the past year, pretty much ever since I picked up my very own Paderno World Cuisine spiralizer from Amazon. I have a whole unboxing and how to video I did that you can watch here. Don’t get me wrong I still love my Paderno spiralizer but, we have limited counter space at my house so unfortunately it gets stored away and sometimes forgotten about… I know it’s horrible.
I figured a lot of you probably have this issue with other appliances in your kitchen. They simply just don’t all fit unless you have a Martha Stewart kitchen, you need to find alternate solutions that fit your space/lifestyle. I’ve been on the hunt for a quicker way to spiralize my veggies, so when I came across the Very Healthy Sprial Slicer from Varietyland, I thought I’d give it a try and make a yummy recipe for you guys.
I love this zucchini pasta and creamy avocado sauce because it feels indulgent without the carb crash. You can easily enjoy this dish for lunch or dinner, cold or hot and you wont feel bloated afterwards. Note: No bikini bodies were harmed in the making of this recipe 😉
I also loved the addition of my vegan parmesan cheese with this pasta recipe since it adds texture and provides a cheesy taste without the dairy.
I reached out to Varietyland and they have offered to giveaway 3 of their veggie slicers to you guys aka my friends living in the US and Canada! If your impatient like me and want to start spiralizing now, you can pick up one today and use the coupon code “NIKKYHNN” upon checkout to receive 20% (offer expires August 31st 2015). I checked and Amazon usually has them discounted anyways so you actually will get the 20% on top of the sale which I thought was a pretty sweet deal. You can find the handheld veggie slicer here! Also, Varietyland is proud to mention that the Very Healthy Spiral Slicer is now available for sale in Canada here.

Just found your blog through The Healthy Maven! 🙂 I love it!

Welcome! So happy to hear 🙂 Have a great dinner tonight I hope you enjoy this recipe!
I really love zucchini noodles but don’t have anything other than a veggie peeler to make them with. Because that’s a bit time consuming and doesn’t make the best shape of noodles I just don’t make them that often. This recipe sounds delicious though so I am going to try it!!
My favorite summer treat is watermelon!!
I totally love my Paderno too but it often sits on my counter for a day or two before I’m not lazy to clean it! This little appliance looks awesome. So does this pasta! YUM!
