When you’re craving the fixings for a traditional Italian dish, but you could do without the carbs, turn to the Veggetti! This kitchen gadget for under $15 actually works and is extremely easy to use. In the photos below, I prepared my meatballs and tomato sauce hours before in the slow-cooker, then garnished my veggie noodles with the meatball concoction. My favorite recipe for Crock Pot Italian Turkey Meatballs is from the archives of skinnytaste.com.
Here is what you’ll need to whip up your favorite pasta dish (minus the pasta!):
- small bowl
- Gourmet Recipe Guide
- zucchini, squash, or veggie of choice
- prepared sauce or topping
Step one: Wash vegetables and peel them if you choose.
Step two: Remove cover from veggetti and insert zucchini into either the end marked “thin” or the end marked “thick.” Gripping metal holders, twist the zucchini clockwise. When zucchini gets too short, use cover to continue twisting.
Step three: Bring water to a boil and add zucchini pasta for two minutes only. Refer to the recipe guide for recommended cooking times.
Step four: Drain zucchini noodles and top with your favorite sauce and enjoy!
