I used my 7-Blade Spiralizer (affiliate) to make these zucchini noodles happen!
As much as we love our veggies, I’ve never considered getting a vegetable spiralizer… *gasp!*
Ok, so zucchini noodles and curly fries does sound fun… but would buying yet another kitchen gadget be worth it? Keep in mind… single mom with a kid graduating from college soon… and starting med school. Gotta keep my spending in check!
But when I spotted this 7-Blade Spiralizer (affiliate) for under $30, I couldn’t pass it up!
While I waited for my next-day delivery, I stocked up on zucchini (first time ever, buying this in my entire life!), sweet potatoes, yellow squash, daikon, and carrots to spiralize!
When it arrived, the first thing I threw on there was a zucchini… because srsly… the countless zucchini “zoodle” recipes available online.
And LOOKIE! Omg, so much fun!!!
It took only a minute to transform one zucchini into these perfect noodles! 😀
And being that I’ve never tasted a freakin zucchini before, I thought adding bacon, spinach, garlic, and juicy scallops would guarantee a winner, even for my first try.
- 4 strips bacon
- 1 head garlic roasted
- 2 medium zucchinis spiralized into spaghetti noodles
- 1/2 cup spinach
- 6 scallops
- salt and pepper to taste
- Place a large pan over medium heat. Cook bacon until desired crispiness. Without draining bacon fat, transfer cooked bacon from pan to paper towel.
- Sprinkle scallops with salt and pepper. Then in the same pan with bacon fat, cook scallops until firm and golden brown. Transfer to plate when finished.
- Again, in the same pan, add whole garlic cloves and spinach and cook for about 2-3 minutes or until spinach is wilted.
- Add zucchini noodles into pan with garlic and spinach and toss to cook, 2-3 minutes.
- Divide the pasta into 2 bowls and top each with scallops and crumbled bacon.
