Did you know that one cup of cooked pasta has 220 calories and 43 grams of carbohydrates? Save calories and eat more vegetables by giving zucchini noodles – also known as “zoodles” — a try. Watch the video now:



1 large zucchini
1 teaspoon of olive oil


  1. Wash and dry zucchini. Cut ends.
  2. Using a veggie spiralizer, make noodles on a cutting board. (If you don’t have access to a spiralizer, you can use a veggie peeler to make thicker flat noodles or a Julienne Peeler to make string noodles.)
  3. On medium setting, heat oil in sauté pan. Add noodles.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes. Toss occasionally.
  5. Remove from heat and serve on plate.
