I have a new must-have kitchen gadget to add to my list!  (See my list of must-have’s here.) The Spiralizer!  Yes, I believe I’m late to the party here.

Okay, who has been using one of these?  I have seen these for a while but I didn’t use one until I was at my parent’s house this past week and my mom had one.  There are a lot of different models, but this one is inexpensive and super easy to use!

Spiralizers are fun and make such a pretty presentation.  And WOW, you won’t miss the pasta (or not much!).  Use zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, carrots… whatever you like.  You can top with traditional pasta toppings or make into a pretty salad like I did here.

I have a Zucchini Noodle with Tahini Sauce recipe in my Summer Cleanse.  Yum! 

Have you used a spiralizer yet?  What’s your favorite recipe?
