    This makes me want to get a zucchini spiral thingy! It’s funny, we have tons of squash growing in our yard but zucchini is definitely not my go-to food. I’ll save this for when our harvest ripens! Thank you…

    We just had zuke noodles for dinner tonight! It is quickly becoming one of my go-to’s – especially with a baby that likes to eat off my plate – she loves them too. This looks delicious – Love the meatball idea!

  3. I just looked at a bunch of recipes that use those spiral cutters. SUCH a great idea. The opportunities are endless 🙂

  4. My family and I are trying to eat more organic and I love to cook. Also my dad has Parkinson’s and can’t swallow meat so I’m trying to help my mom find healthy vegetarian meals. I love your blog!

  5. this zoodler looks interesting, I have been thinking about getting one. You make this look so easy and the recipe looks delicious!

  6. I don’t have a curly cutter like this, but I do have a potato peeler. I peeled some zucchini last week in place of noodles for beef stroganoff. It was actually pretty good – I was pleasantly surprised. Now I would like to try the zucchini in place of lasagna noodles.

    Made this for dinner along with some bison meatballs with tazacki sauce. We loved this zucchini dish and will be making it again. My hubby is not usually a zucchini person and he adored it. Thanks do much for posting.
