As you can see from the above picture, zoodles are zucchini that have been run through a spiralizer to make "zoodles" for spaghetti substitute. I won't go into it much here but a spiralizer is a type of machine that, well, makes spirals out of fleshy vegetables. I'll do a post on spiralizers later.
The problem with zoodles is that they are watery since zucchinis are full of water so you have to get the water out of there somehow. Some sites tell you to salt them, let them sweat then squeeze them out. This is fine except it's a lot of work and this site is about ease and making cooking fun so we really didn't want to do that. We've done it before and it's just a pain - too, too much. Another way is to boil them. We've done this. Guess what? Add a watery vegetable to water and hope for something non-watery why don't you? It was watery, trust me.
Last night we decided to saute them to see if that would be an easier way. It was! We heated a pan, sauteed the zoodles for about 5 minutes then put them in a colander over a plate and they turned out tremendous. And we could control the amount of crunchiness ourselves. We topped it with some tomato sauce from a jar that I doctored up and we had a delicious, easy, paleo, dinner.
