Zucchini Noodles

Zucchini noodles are a fun and new way to have pasta! They are much less energy dense, therefore, fewer calories than regular pasta. You can substitute this for regular pasta, but make sure you add other fibrous foods like vegetables to your dish to help you feel full and to help with digestion.

I made my zucchini noodles using a regular vegetable peeler. There are devices out there that can make it look like spaghetti noodles, but if you don't have one, vegetable peelers do the same job! 


Try having these with Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan!           


  • 4 Medium zucchini's​

  • 2 tbsp. (30mL) Butter or margarine​

  • 1 tsp. (5mL) Garlic powder​

  • To taste Salt and pepper​



  1. Wash zucchini’s and cut the ends off

  2. Using a potato peeler peel the zucchini lengthwise to make long flat “noodles”

  3. Fill a pan with enough water to just cover the amount of zucchini you cut

  4. Bring the water to a boil, add the zucchini noodles and cover the pan

  5. Only boil for ~1-2 min then drain

  6. Return the noodles back to the pan and add the remaining ingredients

  7. Enjoy :)
