"This mediterranean version of the popular vegetable noodles is the perfect low carb summer meal. Zucchini noodles, which you may also know as "zoodles", are not only quick to prepare, but can also be combined with any of your favorite sauces. You're feeling super hungry and don't quite trust the green vegetable noodles yet? Use half zucchini noodles, half spaghetti and still get a taste of the wonderful combination of mediterranean flavors and fruity, tangy citrus notes."
