Vegetable Noodle Recipes: You Won't Miss the Carbs

Gluten Free Baked Spaghetti Squash
Vegetable noodles can do anything pasta can do and veggie noodle recipes pack more nutrition into typically starch-filled dishes. Easy to make and easy to eat, spiralized veggies work well in traditional pasta dishes, casseroles, and lasagnas, where pasta noodles normally rule. Skip the box of spaghetti and grab your spiralizer or veggie peeler instead.
