I'm harvesting lots of Zucchinis...this year I have a new gadget to make Zucchini Pasta! It's a Spiral Vegetable Cutter and it turns zucchini and other veg into noodles! It's a great way to cut down on our wheat intake.

      It's called a Veggie Twister Easy Vegetable Cutter This is a link to a video all about it. It's a handy little device but I wouldn't want to use it for mountains of Zucchini noodles. :)
