Zoodles! I think is one of the things all the food bloggers are talking about and you rather love or hate them. To be honest, I wanted to try them, but because my sister-in-law, who’s a wonderful woman and better foodblogger, posted a video on YouTube showing how to make them (link here). At the same time, it happened that the lady I buy loads of my kitchen stuff, started stocking those “Spyralizers” to make kind of “spaghetti” or “tagliatelle” with your vegetables, and it was cheap and fun, so I decided to buy one and try it (my sister-in-law uses a simple peeler and the result is as good as mine, so don’t stop trying if you don’t have a spyralizer).
The result was pretty good, and to be hones, so easy and quick that there’s no reason to not have a nice and healthy supper, or a starter.
This recipe I’m bringing you today was made with things I found in my freezer and to use some dried tomatoes I dried myself in my oven and kept in olive oil in a jar, but feel free to experiment with some other ingredients you have lying around.
Here’s the recipe.
- 2 medium zucchinni
- 2 garlic cloves
- 4 slices of smoked turkey breast
- 6 dried tomatoes (fresh tomato is ok)
- Olive oil
- salt and pepper
- Wash the zucchinni, dry well with a cloth and cut off the ends.
- With the spyralizer or the peeler make the noodles (check the video in the text of the post). Add salt to them and let them in a strainer so they loose all the bitter juices.
- In the meantime, peel the garlic cloves and thinely slice them.
- Add the garlic to a pan at medium heat until gloden brown. At this point add the turkey in stripes.
- Sautee the garlic and turkey and when the turkey is golden brown too, add the dried tomatoes.
- Keep sauteing for 5 minutes and add the zoodles.
- Add pepper and check the salt (add more if needed)
- Sautee all together for 3-4 minutes and they're ready to eat.
- Sprinkle with some parmiggiano cheese (optional)
