Zoodle, do the zoodle. Zoodle, do the zoodle danceeeeee.
If you have kids, you know what the above sentence is in reference too. And, if you don’t have kids, you should probably go and watch “Pb & J Otter” to know what I’m talkin’ about.
And, yes, I DO NOT have kids, and I know that show. I enjoy spending my time watching cartoon otters dance around my TV screen.
You can judge me.
Contrary to what I might have led you to believe, we are not talking about otters or anything to do with peanut butter and Jelly today.
BUT, we are talking about zoodles. Do you know what that is?
A zucchini, made into a NOODLE. Otherwise known as the most fun word to say EVER.
And one of the most fun things for your taste buds to plant into when they’re mixed with creamy Greek yogurt, Smokey BBQ Sauce and ALL THE CHEESE.
And, really, that’s ABOUT IT.
This bake you guys. It’s so easy.
E-Z like I am not even going to type the whole word, because you can MAKE IT in less time than that would take.
That might be a slight exaggeration. BUT, you understand me.
In fact it’s even SO easy that I MIGHT have made this for the last 4 days straight because I didn’t even want to think about creating something new and exciting when something old was still making my taste buds RAISE DA ROOF.
Hint: I did.
To make this here zucchini noodle casserole (that just so happens to be grain free, low carb and protein packed! WHATWHAT.) you’ll be using that ohsocoolandfresh thing that is popping up all ovah the interwebz: the spiralizer.
BUT, if you haven’t jumped on that bandwagon, just use your mandolin. You’ll still be cool.
Then you’re going to dry those zoodlies out in your oven. DO NOT. I REPEAT. DO NOT skip this step.
I did once. <– Never again. Unless you like your casseroles to go for a swim before you eat them.
Zucchinis, you guys, have A LOT of water. You needa get rid o’ that, cappesh?
Once you’ve done that, you’re ALMOST to the finish line! Just gently heat some Greek yogurt (<3) your favorite BBQ sauce and CHEESE in a pot until its smooth and ohsocreamy.
Mix it up with your zoodles, some cilantro and VOILA. A nutrit-a-licious dinner that even your kids will love.
I know we established I don’t HAVE kids. BUT, I have a husband.
Same thang 😉
