The Veggetti Giveaway and Review

Zoodles with my meat sauce makes a perfect healthier spaghetti!

I have seen many recipes for "zoodles" instead of pasta and have wanted to get a spiralizer to make some too! Then I was contacted to review the Veggetti on my blog.

· The Veggetti® turns vegetables into delicious, healthy spaghetti, instantly

· By using zucchini, squash, carrots, cucumbers and potatoes, the Veggetti® creates thick or thin pasta with significantly less calories and carbs than traditional noodles.

· Ordinary pasta has 800 calories and 160 grams of carbs compared to 60 calories and 8 grams of carbs using Veggetti®!

· Great for those who are trying to make healthier food choices, diabetics, or on gluten-free diets

· The Veggetti® is quick & easy to use, has stainless steel blades, and is dishwasher safe

· Veggetti® is available at Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, Walgreens, CVS and other fine retailers nationwide

As you all know I am diabetic so I have to watch how much pasta I eat because too many carbs aren't good for me. Zoodles (zucchini noodles) are perfect for me! I made up my favorite homemade meat sauce and sauteed some Veggetti zucchini. It was delicious and I didn't miss the pasta.

Using the Veggetti was pretty simple. Long veggies will fit easily into either end but potatoes, you'll need to find some that are on the skinnier side. This little hand held gadget is small enough for your cupboard and won't take up valuable space.

The safety cap pulverizes my potato so I just stop spiralizing at that point and get another potato if I need more.

I have made this breakfast a few times already, I just love how crispy the potato strings get!

check it out in action! You simply put your veggie or potato in one end and twist like you're sharpening a pencil. Careful not to cut your fingers though!
