People often ask how to make my one pot creamy garlic pasta with zoodles instead of pasta. Over the years I’ve always had to say “no” – that would make it a completely different recipe. Allow me to introduce you to that recipe today! These vegan creamy garlic zucchini noodles. Made in one pot, just like the original reader fave!
What are zoodles?
Zucchini noodles / zoodles are, for the uninitiated, literally a raw zucchini (courgette) cut into the shape of pasta noodles. They provide a low-carb alternative to wheat-based pasta and sneak an extra vegetable into your meal. I don’t eat low carb myself, but I like to eat zoodles sometimes because they’re fun and I’m always down for extra veggies. Plus, my bae is gluten-free and I don’t want to dine alone ;).
Unlike “real” pasta, though, zucchini noodles don’t get starchy and thus don’t help to thicken sauces or cling sauce to their surface.
