Pad Thai is traditionally made with rice noodles that are stir-fried. Tasty additions are tofu, bean sprouts, peanuts, and other vegetables. It can be as spicy or as mild as you like.

How to Make Zoodles

Talk about DIY noodles! We had loads of zucchini in the garden so we spiralized a couple to use as the noodle part of this dish. We lightly sauteed then but they’re also fantastic raw. They’re easy to make, too. One method is to run them through a spiralizer. This takes just a minute or two and results in long, even zoodles.

However, if you don’t have a spiralizer, just use a vegetable peeler. Slice your zucchini part way through lengthwise first. Then use the peeler to shave off layers of noodles. It’s that easy.

Easy Balsamic Tomato Sauce

This balsamic tomato sauce was so easy to make and it really hit the spot when I wanted something hearty but not too involved or time-consuming to make. It’s simple and tastes that way, but the balsamic adds a richness and depth of flavor that was lovely.
