Zoodles (zucchinni noodles) with smoked turkey breast

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.

Ingredients

  2. 2 garlic cloves
  3. 4 slices of smoked turkey breast
  4. 6 dried tomatoes (fresh tomato is ok)

Instructions
  1. Wash the zucchinni, dry well with a cloth and cut off the ends.
  2. 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.
  3. In the meantime, peel the garlic cloves and thinely slice them.
  4. Add the garlic to a pan at medium heat until gloden brown. At this point add the turkey in stripes.
  5. Sautee the garlic and turkey and when the turkey is golden brown too, add the dried tomatoes.
  6. Keep sauteing for 5 minutes and add the zoodles.
  7. Add pepper and check the salt (add more if needed)
  8. Sautee all together for 3-4 minutes and they're ready to eat.
  9. Sprinkle with some parmiggiano cheese (optional)
  10. Enjoy!
