Why we love zoodles
We LOVE zoodles because they're just as fun as pasta and you get the benefit of an extra veggie on your plate.
The deets about the recipe
The zoodles are reminiscent of a spaghetti and the creamy sauce is a cross between a pesto and a creamy Alfredo.

3. Remove paper towels and pour the sauce over the noodles and toss well; top with white beans and stir to combine.
