My version is made with zoodles instead of noodles from my nifty Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer Pro, 4-Blade. If you don’t know what zoodles are or if you want to learn about the Paderno Spirlalizer; you can read all about it here.
I will totally admit to you, that in some zoodle substitute recipes, you really miss the noodles. However, this is not one of them. The zucchini really pairs well with the rich, creamy, salty Carbonara sauce. If you love Carbonara sauce, then you will LOVE my Low Carb Carbonara Recipe. Enjoy my friends! And when you love it, I told you so!
*Cooking Tip: Cook Carbonara Sauce and zoodles separate. The zoodles will make your sauce runny if you cook them together. You can mix them in together when your sauce is complete and your zoodles are your desired texture.
*Cooking Tip: Let your combined Carbonara Sauce and zoodles rest a few minutes before serving. This will allow the sauce to thicken a little extra and attach itself to the zoodles.
