If you are looking to cut back on eating pasta, then spiralize zucchini is the way to go. Spiralize zucchini is a great alternative to pasta because let’s be honest, chomping on a plate of pasta on a regular basis isn’t exactly healthy.

And if you struggle with eating way too much pasta, meet your new best friend in the kitchen…the spiralizing gadget. It creates pasta-like strands out of vegetables like zucchini, which you can combine with tomatoes, shrimp, onions and any other yummy ingredient you are into eating. Oh, and of course the best part about eating spiralized zucchini is that you get to eat a hefty serving of vegetables, like zucchini!

Zucchini is a super healthy vegetable. Health benefits of zucchini include vitamin A, magnesium, folate, potassium, copper, and phosphorus. This beautiful green also has a high content of omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, niacin, and protein. Moreover, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, vitamin B2, and calcium.
