Earlier this evening I was able to play around with raw noodles. My OXO Good Grips Pro Y-Peeler arrived in the mail and so I pulled out one yellow squash and started turning thin slices of yellow squash into fettuccine!
I must say that I’m impressed with the sharpness of the blade and it does a great job of slicing the vegetables very thinly. For someone searching for low carb foods or gluten free noodles this would be a wonderful option. I make raw fettuccini noodles because I love how they taste and it’s much healthier than your traditional pasta.
Yellow squash, just like zucchini, has a mild taste so it does not overpower the dish you prepare it with.
Since I was craving a dressing, I made one with avocado, ginger, garlic, tomato, freshly ground spices and organic honey. Oh my that turned out heavenly!
Eight years ago, when I first started making vegetable noodles, I found it a bit strange. Mainly because I was used to the traditional pasta noodle, you know? However, I was willing to try something new and I didn’t foolishly think this was traditional pasta, because it isn’t, duh! 😉 After a few times using my Y-Peeler or my Vegetable spiral slicer I grew to love this new type of ‘pasta’ and had a blast turning a variety of squash (and other veggies) into some delicious pasta meals.
