Zoodle Time

Ginger here ready for my first blog post!

Another RD, blogger and Instagrammer I recently began following is Wellness for the Win. Shanna does a great job of making easy meals with the ingredients you can use over again.

On Monday, I looked at my after-work activities for the week and knew I would have time to make a quick meal on Wednesday. I went to Wellness for the Win to check out the entrée section. I haven’t used the spiralizer since summer; mostly because I cut my finger using it and ruined my first batch of zoodles. So I decided to try it out again. With only 4 ingredients and one of them being cheese, this was the recipe for me!

Ingredients:

  • Approx. 1/2 cup frozen chopped baby spinach
  • 1 medium zucchini (or yellow squash)
  • 1 wedge Laughing Cow Swiss cheese
  • 2-3 oz. grilled chicken (optional)

Instructions:

  • Using a Veggeti Pro (or other spiralizing tool), spiralize your zucchini into “noodles”. Set aside.
  • Spray large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and turn stove on medium-high heat.
  • Place frozen spinach into skillet and sauté until thawed.
  • Add spiralized zucchini to the pan and stir to combine.
    • Tip: Figure out how you like your Zoodles. For softer zoodles, let them set in the pan with the lid on. Add a touch of Extra Virgin Olive Oil if desired. 
  • Cut Laughing Cow wedge into small pieces and add to pan, stirring with a spatula to melt and combine.

Positives about this recipe:

  • Spinach was already on the grocery list. I make a habit to purchase spinach weekly to use for various things, salads, scrambled eggs, sandwiches, etc.
  • Zucchini was $1.79/lb!
  • Spiralizers start at $10 at Bed Bath & Beyond.
  • I don’t normally buy laughing cow cheese, but I found a replica at Aldi and could also bring it as a snack to work.
  • Less than 15 minutes to prepare with cooking the chicken!
  • Creamy
