Got Zoodles? Veggetti Review and Giveaway

25. July 2014 15:54 by jennifer | 96 Comments

Disclosure: The Veggetti®, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by Ontel.

For a while now I have been coveting a vegetable spiralizer but never felt like spending more than $20 for one since some of the ones I have seen really didn’t look like they were worth more than that. It looked like a great way to add in extra vegetables to our diet, plus now that our entire family is eating fewer grains, I really wanted a way to give the #TampaTrio their favorite food (noodles) while incorporating a more healthy alternative.

I received the Veggetti a few weeks ago, but we went on vacation, so it wasn't until this week when I picked up my produce co-op from Carlita's Bowl Fruit & Vegetable Co-Op and it was loaded with zucchini that I knew it was the perfect time to make zoodles!!

I read the directions, and quickly made zoodles with one zucchini. Haley wanted in on the action, too.

She loves to cook with me, and this was a great way for her to learn how to make healthy alternatives to pasta!! In total we used 6 medium sized zucchini to feed our family of 5.

I just sauteed it in a dab of olive oil for about 6 minutes, added a sprinkle of parm cheese, and PRESTO. Dinner.

I highly recommend that you follow their advice of cutting the zoodles in half before cooking.

My daughter is 55 inches tall, and this zoodle is taller than her! Surprised

We loved the Veggetti and I can easily see us incorporating it into our weekly meal plans!

Additional Info:

•    The Veggetti® turns vegetables into delicious, healthy spaghetti, instantly
•    By using zucchini, squash, carrots, cucumbers and potatoes, the Veggetti® creates thick or thin pasta with significantly less calories and carbs than traditional noodles.
•    Ordinary pasta has 800 calories and 160 grams of carbs compared to 60 calories and 8 grams of carbs using Veggetti®!
•    Great for those who are trying to make healthier food choices, diabetics, or on gluten-free diets
•    The Veggetti® is quick & easy to use, has stainless steel blades, and is dishwasher safe
•    Veggetti® is available at Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, Walgreens, CVS and other fine retailers nationwide.
