A few weeks ago, I bought a new toy for myself…the Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Cutter. This nifty little gadget allows me to very easily turn whole zucchini into lovely, uniformly shaped zucchini noodles in just a few seconds. This is a lot easy that performing this task with my mandolin slicer, and it’s really quite fun. Eager to put my Veggetti to the test, I whipped up this deliciously fresh and light Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Lemon Chive Sauce Recipe. I made it as a quick, no-cook side dish to a Sunday brunch, and it was excellent. Very light, lemony, and simple, it came out to just 2 Points per serving. I can’t wait to play around with the Veggetti and see what other great new Weight Watchers Recipes I can create!
