I got a noodleizer

You know, one of those things that makes "noodles" from vegetables. I actually like zucchini and squash nudeln and those things are $6/box pre-n00dled at the store.

I found a handheld noodlizer cheap at Kroger. It looks like this:



After some fiddling with it (like, adding a container to the clear part so I have somewhere for the noods to go while I'm doing this) I've made 3 batches of nooddles, thus already making this thing a better deal than the pre-noddled.

Stuff I've learned:
  • This is way easier than making spaghetti squash; certainly faster and with a lot less liquid afterwards.
  • They really do have a close-to-al-dente noooodly type texture.
  • They taste way better heated in marinara sauce.
  • I tried them with butter/olive oil and some parmesan cheese; not nearly as good as with marinara (which is another vegetable, almost).

    Def a way to *almost* have pasta while still getting veggie goodness and plenty of fiber, though.

I need to find someone to make me some zoodles to taste before I invest in a spiralizer. As it is, I have mandolin slicer I bought last December that is still in the package.

Here, Kroger and HEB both sell prepackaged veggie noodles for $6 a package. That's how I tried mine. The ones I've seen are zucchini, butternut, beet and carrot.

Kroger = Fry's here, which is where I usually shop. I feel like I've seen the veggie noodles there before. If I buy some, I need to commit to cooking them. This week I got steamer bags of frozen vegetables, which won't turn to slime if I forget about them. Fresh spinach, on the other hand, has met many a stinky demise.

I put mine in a pan with some Newman's marinara sauce, my current favorite brand. ;) Warm it up a bit, top with parmesan.
