No Noodles.

Let’s talk about noodles.
Ramen: count me out. Pho: gross. Beef Stroganoff: pass me the vomit bag. Chicken noodle soup: take those noodles away and you have a winner. Pasta: never been a fan. I know you are probably saying “whut the whuuuuuut” to yourself right now, especially to the last one. I know, I know I’m sure that I am sooooooo non-Italian for disliking pasta. I think it’s a texture thing I just can’t get over. Also, the fact that I’d rather have a bowl full of meatballs and tomato sauce piled high with Parmesan cheese needs no questioning. 
While I have an adversity to noodles, I can get behind the aesthetics of them. Especially, when you get to twirl those beautiful stringy ribbons around the tines of a fork. Luckily, seester surprised me with a veggie spiralizer on Sunday. To say I was excited is an understatement. 
Enter zucchini noodles. 

Let’s make a zingy, zesty dressing and 

toss the noodles in it. 

Capisce?

Now this, this is a noodle I can get behind. A noodle we can believe in. 

Seriously. 

So flavorful, soooooo melt in your mouth. 

This is perfect for lunch or dinner! 

Serve it with some Chicken Parmesan…now that’s Italian! haha!
