Zucchini noodles make a delicious low carb substitute for traditional pasta. It has a similar texture to a traditional noodle and they’re simple to make with the right tools. Sticking to a low carb diet is easier when you have carb substitutes to help kick your cravings.

You can make this recipe ahead of time and you can store it in the fridge for later. Simply heat the sauce in the microwave or on the stovetop when you’re ready to enjoy.

You can enjoy zucchini noodles cooked, or raw. If you prefer a firmer noodle, leave them raw. They have a bit of a crunch and are super juicy too. If you would rather a softer noodle, cooking them will soften them up.
