    Primal pasta that's not made of Spaghetti Squash

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone knows a alternative for pasta that's not squash.
    I can't get the spaghetti squash here and tomorrow we are making our home-made bolognese sauce.
    I need a good replacement that isn't too difficult...
    My story, My thought....

    It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

    Calories? Aren't that those little creatures that live in my closet and shrink my clothes at night?

    Zucchini noodles are very similar. Better even, I think. Peel the zucchini and then pare them with a vegetable peeler so that they're like fettucini. Keep them covered at room temp till it's time to eat them. You don't even have to cook them. But if you do, steam them lightly after you peel them.

    I would just use polenta though. It's not strictly primal but it's not made with flour, either.

    These are good. If you need spaghetti width a simple shred peeler works on any vegetable. For firmer ones like parsnips or broccoli stems you can sauté in olive oil for ~3 minutes to soften.

    Rice noodles would work well, too.

    I second the kelp noodles. They are a bit denser than regular noodles, however, they are really low carb (maybe even carb-free? Can't remember). If you aren't worried about the carbs, though, I would recommend rice noodles.

    Zucchini Spaghetti is the best! Here's my best recipe for it: Spiralized Zucchini Spaghetti - To Live & Diet in LA

    This recipe calls for a spiralizer to make it, but you can just use as peeler, as the previous commenter said. Hope this helps!

    Zucchini noodles, kelp or konbu noodles, Parsnip noodles, Shredded Cabbage, Eggplant Noodles. A spiralizer is an AMAZING investment!
