Are You In-Spiralized? We Sure Are!

Ali’s blog features ways to get creative with all kinds of veggies for super healthy meals – check out

Here’s the nifty package that arrived via UPS –


How about we create a Kitchen Invention with Gnocchi, spiralized Zucchini, Tuttorosso Diced Tomatoes, and green peas, all in a super light Spring-time sauce?

Grab a glass of wine and let’s get started.

Chop Garlic

Simple is best, and that’s what this is all about – don’t have a spiralizer? Use your zester to create ribbons of zucchini.

Spiralized Zucchini

Chop 3 gloves of garlic, add to your pan with olive oil. Sizzle a bit – don’t burn the garlic! – and add the zucchini ribbons. Pretty!

Zucchini in the pan

Next in – the diced tomatoes, some of the tomato juice from the can, and bring to a boil.

Add tomatoes

Turn the heat to low, and add a small can of green peas. Way to amp up our veggies today, right?

Add Peas

Toss in some Italian herbs, maybe a little oregano, and a twist of the pepper grinder – DONE! Dinner is served!


Be sure to take a look at the recipes (and sign up to win the Grand Prize) over at Good luck!

  1. Looks wonderful & that’s quite a nice little package you got. I bought my daughter a spiralizer for Christmas & she loves it. I was a little hesitant to get it because it really cost a lot but she does seem to make use of it plus she make some wonderful garlic zucchini for us at Easter that I loved.


    • Everyone I know who has one LOVES it. I just could not get another kitchen tool, no place for it! So used the handy zester, and it worked pretty well. Not as curly and pretty as the ones in the pictures from that cool blog, but got the job done. Don’t you just love zucchini and garlic? So simple, and such good combo. How’s your weather doing? Thawing yet?
