Greek Zoodles Recipe

Greek Zoodles Recipe I finally broke down and bought a spiralizer (affiliate link – this is the one I have). I went back and forth about it trying to decide whether or not I needed another gadget. Finally, I decided it would be worth it to be able to make zoodles – like this Greek Zoodles recipe.Greek Zoodles Recipe These zucchini noodles are topped with a hearty, flavorful sauce. The hot sauce softens the zoodles up just enough without making them mushy or watery. Not having to pre-cook the zoodles also makes this a quick meal that’s ready in about 20 minutes. It’s a yummy, good-for-you dinner that’s perfect for weeknights!
