'Zoodles' Zucchini Noodles Alfredo, big yum!
Zucchini noodles are hot right now. I do not have a spiral cutter but I do have a mandolin. You can use a knife or a vegetable peeler or even cut across into rounds. This is a creamy cheesy 10! Keep the flavors simple and clean to showcase the zucchini. It's just delicious, fresh and healthy!
