My New Favorite Kitchen Tool

I recently purchased this little gadget for my KitchenAid Mixer!!! Oh my goodness, this spiralizer is AMAZING!!!! (P.S. – I linked the least expensive one I could find, but it is refurbished. If you would rather not have one that is refurbished, click here to purchase this one.) I have only used this once, and already, I can’t wait to use it again!

Like many of you, I am really trying to make healthy meals for my family! I purchased a Veggetti (doesn’t that just sound naughty!?!?) a couple years ago! And while, essentially, it does the same thing, the spiralizer tool was so much easier to use and clean! It was SO fast! I just cut the ends off of my zucchini and followed the direction on my tool!

After I had the zucchini cut into zoodles, I cooked the on the stove for about 7 minutes using a little olive oil and salt. I will say, it looked like I had a ton of zoodles in the pan, but after it cooked down, I wish I would have made more. I used two medium zucchinis for our family of four.

It looks like the pan is so full of zoodles, but they really cooked down!


Also, I totally  used to make my own homemade spaghetti sauce….. But then I discovered Rao’s Homemade Marinara!!!! Holy moly! This stuff tastes like my homemade sauce (maybe even better!), but it takes way less time to make! I usually brown some hamburger, add some onion, and then add one jar of sauce!

Busy Mom Tip: Brown two pounds of hamburger and buy the big jar of sauce (I get it at Costco). Then use part of the sauce for a meal now, and freeze the rest for a meal later!

Talk about a delicious meal! Even my kids loved it!!! Easy, healthy, AND delicious!! Mom for the win!

    A tip if it seems like your zoodles are giving off a lot of water after they cook….
    After spiralizing them, lay them out in a single layer on paper towel. Sprinkle salt on them and let them sit for 10-15 minutes. Then use the paper towels to smoosh the zoodles and absorb as much as the water as possible.

    Rao’s is the “bomb” for quick sauce!
