    Looking for Gadgets for Making Pasta out of Veggies

    I'm looking at this for making spiral stuff for veggie pasta.
    Any other ideas or gadgets you might recommend?
    Thank you.

    I have that exact model and got it from Amazon as well. I absolutely love it. I peel and spiralize some zucchini, cook it up in some butter and cover it in Parmesan. Best food ever.

    It's supposedly also good for thin slicing things, but I haven't been able to get past spiralizing every piece of zucchini that comes within 20 feet of the house.

    I use a spirooli. It's very good at what it does.

    I have something similar that I bought locally. I haven't used the spiral cut zucchini as a pasta substitute, just sauté in butter with S&P and serve as a veggie. I don't even peel it. My family loves zucchini so much prepared that way that I don't want to spoil it now by using it as fake pasta, lol.

    I have the Paderno and while it is totally fun, it takes up quite a bit a space for an occasional use gadget. I also have a mandoline and the spiralizer gives a more noodle-like quality.

    I'd rather just cook a pile of veggies and put whatever sauce I've prepared on top of them. But that's just my personal preference.
