I love to garden. One of the things we always grow is zucchini. If you have ever planted Zucchini you know that one little plant can produce a lot of Zucchini. One of our favorite things to make with it is Zoodles or Zucchini Noodles. These noodles are Keto friendly and actually really delicious! You will love this Zoodles with homemade alfredo sauce recipe to enjoy during Zucchini season.

How to Make Zoodles with Homemade Alfredo

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • You can easily add a protein to this dish if you would like. Chicken or shrimp is a great option. I love to grab a rotisserie chicken from the store and add that into this recipe after it is cooked.  
  • If you are really short on time, you can use your favorite jar of Alfredo sauce instead of making your own Alfredo. 
  • Be sure you invest in a good spiralizer. This will make all the difference. When I first started making Zoodles I was using a peeler and it took forever. Now the noodles are ready to go so quickly. 
  • Don’t overcook the noodles, you want them to be crunchy. 

Storage

This is a pasta dish that you want to serve right away! As it sits it becomes watery. With that being said we don’t recommend storing it as it will become a watery mess. 

How do you make Zoodles not soggy?

The biggest reason Zoodles are soggy is because they are overcooked! After you spiral your zucchini let it sit for about 10 minutes with some salt before adding to the dish. Your Zoodles should be crunchy. 

Should I salt my Zoodles before cooking?

Salting is a must! This will help the zoodles lose some of the liquid so they do not make the dish watered down.
