Healthy, Lazy Chef 👩‍🍳 Creamy Zoodles


ow many of you out there have some fond memories eating Pasta Roni or some sort of buttery, creamy, fettuccine alfredo pasta?! Noodles, especially in creamy sauce, is such a comfort food for many of us. The problem is that these foods are often considered “treat” foods as they tend to be super rich.

Want to enjoy some of the same type of flavors, but also include some nutritious veggies, mind your caloric intake, and feel good about? Look no further than our creamy, buttery, zoodle pasta! 

Two Important Ingredients

This recipe requires a spiralizer. I have the “Vegetti”, purchased for about $10 bucks from Bed Bath & Beyond, but there are tons of other brands out there. There are also stores like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, or even Safeway that sells zucchini noodles pre-spiralized, just purchase in their packages! (a bit more expensive)

Another essential ingredient is the Kinder’s Buttery Steak Seasoning. It’s a spice that gives some real butter flavor! I find mine from Costco since I use it all of the time, but also available at Safeway, Whole Foods, etc.

Time to Chow!

Prep Time: 5-min.
Cook Time: 5-min.
Servings: 1 meal

Yes, my picture shows the Lemon Pepper seasoning, but that was a brain fart. At least you know what the brand looks like!
  • 2 zucchini squash or 1 package of spiralized zucchini noodles*
  • ½ cup cooked ground turkey or beef
  • Spices: 6 dashes of Kinder’s Buttery Steak Seasoning**, pepper & paprika to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp whipped cream cheese
  • 1-2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

*I made 3 for myself cause I wanted more food AND used yellow squash instead since I ran out of zucchini squash. Yellow squash also works, but the seeds sometimes get caught up in the spiralizer.

  • Spiralize zucchini (or open package) and place into a cold skillet.
  • Add in meat and spices on top.
  • Turn on high heat and evenly mix ingredients.
  • Cook for about 2-min., or until the zucchini starts to turn darker and water begins to come out a bit - be careful not to overcook as the zoodles become soggy! 
  • Turn OFF heat and add in the cream cheese.
  • Mix evenly until it’s melted and add parmesan cheese on top!
