Do you cook your zoodles briefly Barbara? I've done mine in the skillet before...also zapped in the microwave...and both have worked.

Deanna,


Mostly I "dry" stir fry in a hot fry pan to get rid of moisture and heat the zoodles.  Sometimes, if I am really organized, I will spiralize the squash and let it drain for several hours or overnight in the fridge.  I place them in a colander set into a bowl and cover with a paper towel.  Some squashes are really moist and some are much drier.  You never know, but usually the really small ones are drier and don't need this.  I don't salt them at all.


I've also sauteed them in coconut oil or olive oil.  The trick is to have a hot fry pan and hot oil and stir fry very quickly so they slightly brown but before they get mushy.

Barb, have you tried this recipe using spaghetti squash? Bet it would be good on them also.

ldyrdr4311,


This would be very good over the spaghetti squash.  It is a quick and easy sauce for nearly everything, even over any vegetables.  I've grilled many kinds of vegetables and poured this over them, over salads as well.  Super delicious over any kind of grilled fish or seafood, especially when these are place on top of zoodles.
