I lightly sauteed the zucchini "pasta" in olive, butter and fresh basil. I added some raw garlic and a spritz of lemon juice and salt and pepper. Voila! A healthy, gluten free meal in seconds (and for pennies)!
I also sliced a cucumber and tossed it into a salad. Of course you need to cut the spirals because you could slice the entire cucumber in one try - which would end up being the length of 3 football fields! Ha Ha!
When I sliced the zucchini for the pasta replacement, I couldn't help but notice how pretty the thin edges of green were against the rest of the zuchini. If I had more time, I would use my mandoline to shred red onion finely. Adding another shaved vegetable to a salad or zucchini pasta would be great! I did use the cap in order not to waste as much of the zucchini and cucumber, but I still had a 2 inch or so stick left, which I popped in my mouth because I never ate a "pencil" before let alone one with a sharp point (you will get what I am saying once you use the SpiraLife)!
What makes this product stand out from the rest is not only the price, but it's easy to clean design. Although a very handy brush came with this product, I was able to rinse it under cold water without having to use the brush.
You can find videos on YouTube. I highly recommend this product!
