How to Make Zoodles

Zoodles ( zucchini noddles ) are the famous healthy no carbs and gluten free spaghetti / pasta. Ive been using zucchini ribbons for quite awhile in a lot of my dishes but I didn't try the zoodles method until recently while trying to eat less carbs. 

To make this healthy delicious dish, all you need to learn is how to make the noodles out of the zucchini and that can be done by lots of kitchen-tool options or handmade using the regular way I am showing below in the pictures, which might take little more time. 

You will need 
2 zucchinis, peeled *depends on your servings
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup water
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cut lengthwise slices from zucchini using a vegetable peeler, stopping when the seeds are reached. Turn zucchini over and continue 'peeling' until all the zucchini is in long strips; discard seeds. Slice the zucchini into thinner strips resembling spaghetti.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini in the hot oil for 1 minute. Add water and cook until zucchini is softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

*About the sauce you can actually get creative and make whatever sauce you like, from pesto sauce, avocado sauce, roasted red bell pepper or pumpkin sauce etc just like cooking a pasta dish.. I used pesto sauce, cured meat peices and topped it with basil leaves and parmesan cheese as seen in the first photo.
