Make them yourself. Making zucchini noodles is excessively simple, however, you do need to have a spiralizer close by.

Get them. If you simply need to dunk your foot into the spiralizing waters, and you are not prepared to put resources into a spiralizer, you can buy zoodles from an enormous basic food item or wellbeing food store. They are typically sold in the produce area, where pre-hacked vegetables and plate of mixed greens blends are found. Ensure you purchase new and not solidified zoodles.

MAIN INGREDIENTS

  • ·         2 lbs. Zucchini Noodles. Other spiralized vegetables can be used, such as sweet potatoes or butternut squash.
  • ·         1 lb. chopped Tomatoes. Use cherry, grape, or cocktail tomatoes because they pack the most flavor.
  • ·         4 garlic cloves, minced. This is a MUST. Garlic adds a lot of aroma and flavor to the sauce.
  • ·         3 tbsp. extra virgin Olive Oil. Use extra virgin olive oil for its extra flavor and health benefits.
  • ·         1 tsp. salt
  • ·         1 tsp. pepper
  • ·         1 tsp. dried oregano
  • ·         1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ·         1/4 cup chopped parsley

Seasonings. We’ll use red pepper flakes to add a hint of heat, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Simple!

HOW TO MAKE EASY ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITH TOMATO SAUCE

1. Spiralize the zucchini and set aside. 
2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add tomatoes and cook for about 10 minutes, until they become mushy.
3. Add garlic and the rest of the seasonings. Stir, and cook for about 2 minutes.

4. At this point, add the zucchini noodles, mix everything well, and cook for about 5 more minutes, until the noodles are heated through.

5. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve immediately.

*Some people prefer to cook zucchini noodles a bit longer, until they are completely cooked through. Cook the noodles until they reach the desired doneness. However, the longer you cook them, the softer and soggier they will get.

CAN I MAKE ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITHOUT A SPIRALIZER?

There are some kitchen tools you can use to help you make zucchini noodles. They won’t be quite the same as with a spiralizer, but you can definitely try the following methods:
Use a vegetable peeler.  Simply slide the peeler over the washed zucchini (keep the skin). You’ll end up with wider, fettuccine-like ribbons. 
Use a julienne peeler. Just run the peeler lengthwise to produce long ribbons of zucchini noodles.
Use a knife. Slice the zucchini into very thin, long strips. This method does require some extra time, but if you want to save on the cost of a spiralizer, you might want to give it a try.

TIPS AND TRICKS TO MAKE THE BEST ZUCCHINI NOODLES

·         Don’t overcook. If you don’t like soggy noodles, it is best to cook them to “al dente” doneness, just until they are heated through.
·         Don’t peel the zucchini. Keep the skin on so that the noodles can hold shape better and not get mushy and soggy. Also, there are so many nutrients in the skin!
·         Choose the right zucchini. Make sure you use fresh and firm zucchini. When your zucchini are soft and have blemishes, they will create soggy and less-flavorful noodles. If you do have some “tired” zucchini, I suggest cooking a stew, soup, or sauce with them.

HOW TO STORE AND REHEAT ZUCCHINI NOODLES IN TOMATO SAUCE

Store the leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Make sure you cover them with a tight lid, or plastic wrap. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
Zucchini Noodles are sound and light, however, they taste magnificent, particularly when combined with an incredible sauce. This simple formula I am sharing today is a staple in my family. It takes minutes to cook, and it tends to be presented with any protein. Skirt the pasta for supper this evening. What about certain zucchini noodles?

While I love pasta, I am a HUGE devotee of spiralized vegetables. Purchasing a spiralizer has had a noteworthy effect on my family's eating routine since we eat quite a lot more vegetables. I am cooking spiralized veggies at any rate three times each week, and these Easy Zucchini Noodles in Tomato Sauce are one of my top choices.
