Earlier this month we covered all the ways you can use your spiralizer.

One of the recipes we’ve been spiralizing a lot is this Zucchini Linguine.

  • It’s easy to make: 4 minutes in the microwave.
  • It’s low in calories: Two cups of zucchini (a big portion) are 37 calories. A half cup of marinara sauce is 65 calories. Two tablespoons of grated parmesan are 44 calories.
  • Make or buy the zucchini noodles.
  • You can use any red sauce.
  •  
    Or, use a heart-healthy EVOO-based sauce mixed with:

  • Basil and capers
  • Cacio e pepe (grated cheese and black pepper)
  • Cherry or sundried tomatoes
  • Pimento and olives (roasted red pepper)
  • Sautéed mushrooms
  • Sautéed seafood (salmon, scallops, shrimp)
  •
