Every now and then, it’s good to switch things up. Pasta rocks, I totally get it! As a primal eater, I sometimes dream about all the delicious pasta I used to eat. But zucchini noodles are cool, too. They’re a great gluten-free and paleo option for recipes that need noodles. Zucchini noodles are easy to make and don’t require purchasing any fancy equipment. Best of all, zucchini works as more than just a replacement for pasta, it works well in salads or burritos, or as french fries, tater tots or pizza bites. The possibilities are endless!
