Chicken & Veggie Zoodles

The Veggetti is hands-down my new favorite cooking utensil. Buy it now! Seriously. It’s amazing.

The last couple days I’ve been turning my zucchini into “noodles” and topping them with delicious things like pasta sauce, pesto sauce, chicken, veggies, etc! I’m more of a warm food person, so salads aren’t my favorite thing in the world. But now zucchini is my new lettuce. Here’s what I whipped up off the top of my head today and man is it good! Try it out and let me know what you think! If you do, tag @mamaburnsfat and hashtag #MBFrecipes on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter!

This will only feed one hungry person so make sure to double according to your needs.
