7 Ways to Potato: Potato Spaghetti

Read that again. Potato. Spaghetti. Pretty much any moderately solid vegetable or fruit can be turned into spirals or spaghetti using a Spiralizer. They're pretty magical little devices, honestly.  We picked up our spiralizer for making zucchini noodles (aka Zoodles) during our Whole30 fit, but potatoes are a perfectly reasonable pasta alternative!

While potato noodles (Poodles) aren't totally canon for 7 Days to Die, there's no reason they shouldn't be! Just imagine what a mini auger would do to a sack of potatoes!

Just imagine!

5-Blade Vegetable Slicer/Spiralizer

Potato Spaghetti

Ingredients

  • 1 large russet potato per serving (we used 6)
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Wash and dry potato. Preheat oven to 375ºF
  2. Using a spiralizer on the Spaghetti style blade, cut potatoes lengthwise. Discard end caps that don't get cut.
  3. In a large bowl, add potatoes and cover with cold water. When water becomes cloudy, strain in a colander and gently pat dry with paper towels
  4. Return the potato noodles to the bowl and add olive oil, tossing to ensure coating. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Cover a baking sheet (or 2, if you have a lot of noodles) with aluminium foil to prevent any sticking.
  6. Take a handful of noodles at a time, shaking off excess oil, and spread evenly over baking sheet.
  7. Bake until individual noodles start to turn golden brown and crispy.
  8. Serve in a bowl either plain or with a sauce. Perhaps salsa with some chorizo and shredded cheese? #mexicanspaghetti
