Spaghetti & Meat Sauce w/ Grain Free Zoodles

Greetings! I decided I was way overdo for a post. I've been swamped here the past couple of weeks. There is lots going on in the GGC household recently (it's all good though, so no worries). It's about to get a bit crazier though...but it will all be worth it. Enough of my stuff for now; I'll share more later. This evening I was in the mood for "spaghetti" for dinner. I made a big pot of thick meat sauce by simply browning a couple pounds of ground beef, diced Vidalia onion, and a couple of diced zucchini together in a bit of olive oil. I opened a jar of Del Grosso's Fireworks Sauce and poured it into the pot of browned beef and veggies and simmered it for about 20 minutes or so. I added a couple of pinches of red pepper flakes to boost the heat a bit.

While the sauce simmered, I made a big pile of zoodles with my Paderno Tri-Blade Vegetable Slicer. It only took a couple of minutes to make them. I lightly salted them and wrapped them in paper towels to extract the excess moisture for about 30 minutes and then lightly sauteed them in olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes, just until they were al dente. It was a simple but delicious meal. I snapped a few photos below. If you haven't already seen my post on "How to Make Non-Watery Zoodles"'s worth checking out. I just got tired of having "zoodle soup" every time I wanted I figured out a way to solve that problem. Check out my post here: How to Make Non-Watery Zoodles. Check back tomorrow for my NEW RECIPE debut. Enjoy!
