• 2-5 Zucchini
  • Barilla sauce
  • Salt
  • You can also purchase ready-to-go zucchini noodles at the store.


  1. Instrument of choice. There’s several ways to get the zucchini into noodle form. One way, that I prefer, is a handheld spiralizer. You can also use a regular spiralizer, a julienne peeler, or a mandoline.
  2. Use your instrument to make the zucchini into noodle form. This can be done by peeling the zucchini or using a spiralizer of choice. Pro tip: salt the zucchini here and mix it up so that you get a bit of salt on every piece or shred of zucchini.
  3. Using paper towels, try and press down and get rid of the excess water. It will make it less liquidy at the end.
  4. Grease pan with preferred method. I use Pam.
  5. Layer the pan with a one fourth cup of barilla sauce.
  6. Put your zucchini noodles into the pan.
  7. Pour up to an additional half cup of sauce on top.
  8. Mix around the zoodles so that everything gets saucy. This will take between five and ten minutes.
  9. Enjoy.
