Illustrated Recipe: Zucchini Pasta & Creamy Avocado Sauce

The day has finally come.

I’m a proud owner of a spiralizer!!

I’d been dreaming about having a spiralizer for a while now. I try to avoid refined carbs as much as I can, and a spiralizer would make it easy for me to substitute pastas and noodles and add more veggies to my dish.

Dave got me this spiralizer from Paderno as an early anniversary gift! And I’m so in love ❀

Oh spiralizer, how I longed for you…

I savedΒ this Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Avocado Sauce recipeΒ on my Pinterest a few months ago and decided to make it the next day I got my new toy.

It’s been super hot here, and our apartment overheats really easily, so I’m happy to have recipes that don’t require me to turn on the stove after, like, 10am.

It was really easy to assemble and use the spiralizer. Making my zucchini noodles was a breeze!

 

This recipe is so simple. I was eating my zucchini pasta with avocado sauce within 10 minutes.

Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Avocado Sauce. It’s a light and tasty dish perfect for summer lunch!

I had a bunch of cherry tomatoes and basil from our gardens, and they made a nice addition to this cool summer dish.

There will be more spiralizing happening in my future for sure! Do you have any favorite spiralized vegetable recipes? If so, please share in the comment πŸ™‚ I’d love to hear!
