My New Favorite Kitchen Tool: The Vegetti

My friend Becki did a great recipe post this week, and talked about using a Vegetti to spiralize her veggies into pasta. I had heard of a spiralizer before, but it seemed expensive/difficult/complicated. However, when Becki made it look so easy, and pointed out that the Vegetti is cheaper than a regular spiralizer, I popped over to Amazon and bought myself one… for just $13. Hooray for Amazon Prime, because today at lunchtime, it was on my doorstep!


As you may have noticed, I’ve totally fallen through on my promise to get some race reports up this week. Work has just been crazy, and while I thought I’d have my nights free since I wasn’t in Dallas, all that working from Denver meant was that I had my nights free to… keep working. Our big launch is next week, and we’ve been working hard to prepare! So I was pretty psyched to find that the Vegetti took almost no time at all to whip up a quick meal. (Okay, snack, since it was so light.)

Spiralizing was super easy – I just trimmed the ends off the yellow summer squash I was using, and then started twisting it into the Vegetti. I chose to use the “thick” side, but there is a “thin” cut side as well. Literally less than 30 seconds later, I had spiralized the entire squash… and it was really easy to turn too. (I imagine it would be more difficult with harder vegetables, though.)

I usually love Trader Giotto’s Rustico (seriously, if you live near a Trader Joe’s, you must try it), but I had picked up the Trader Joe’s Organic Spaghetti Sauce with Mushrooms last time I was there… and it was good, but not as good. However, all I had to do was drop a scoop onto the squash, pop it into the microwave for 90 seconds, and then top it with some fresh grated parmesan and basil from my basil plant. (Which I did not kill when I went to Alaska, thankyouverymuch.)

Summer Squash Becomes Spaghetti
Very proud of the fact that I have kept this basil plant alive for 40 days and counting.

It took longer to microwave the bowl than it did to put it together! I loved this as a great indulgent snack – that was still super healthy. I think the Vegetti is my new favorite kitchen tool.
