Need a fresh & easy dish for dinner? These creamy garlic parmesan zoodles will hit the spot!
Creamy Garlic Parmesan ZoodlesHave you tried zoodles yet? Zucchini noodles are a HUGE hit in our house (even with the kids), so I definitely think it’s worth giving them a shot if you haven’t tried them yet! They’re great to use in place of pasta for a lighter/fresher option (also perfect if you’re eating paleo or gluten-free). And with these creamy parmesan zoodles, you likely won’t even miss the pasta. It’s that good! Creamy White Sauce ZoodlesYUM! Mr. Mom Endeavors even said this basically tastes like a simple fettucine alfredo. So, I’ll take that as a win! Plus, this dish is SO easy to make. You can whip it up in 5 minutes! Eat a big helping for a main dish or you can serve it on the side of some tasty grilled chicken – or even cut up some grilled mixed with the dish! The key is to just have a vegetable slicer that will spiralize your zucchini. I have the Paderno Vegetable Slicer (affiliate) and I LOVE it! The kids love using it too! How to make zoodlesSince you do NOT want to overcook the zucchini zoodles (they just get soggy), it doesn’t take long to saute them up at all! And easy & fresh meal idea – perfect for those busy nights!

    OMG! This is to die for. I used your recipe to try zoodles for the first time. I will never be the same again. I Love Zoodles with your creamy parmesan garlic sauce! In fact, I am in the process of writing a post in my blog about my first zoodle experience and have linked to your recipe. You can find it at in my blog, “I Love Zoodles!”

    I don’t usually make zoodles because I’ve never liked them, cooked or raw. But I tried this recipe on a whim and I’m SO glad I did. It was absolutely delicious!

    I just made this again for the second time in less than 2 weeks. I’ve made it with one zucchini and one summer squash and with just zucchini. Two squash seems to be perfect for hubby and I….with no leftovers because whatever’s left in the pan hubby goes back for! Thanks for a fast easy low carb recipe that in my head is pasta!

    This was delicious!!! My whole family couldn’t stop talking about it the entire meal. Last time I made them zoodles I did a pesto sauce and this was a much bigger hit, and a lot less work. Super easy and little clean up. Thanks for the great recipe!!!
