Let’s face it: Almost everyone loves to eat pasta. We adore it, especially when covered in tomato and cream sauce. And we enjoy adding bell peppers, onions, garlic, and fresh tomatoes on top of it.

The only problem is that pasta is full of carbohydrates. And you can gain weight if you don’t burn off what you eat.

Plus, if you eat too much pasta, you can feel sluggish and drowsy.

One more thing: It can cause your blood sugar to spike. So what should you do if you just love eating pasta but don't like the negative effects? Learn how to turn your vegetables into pasta.

That's right. You can turn fresh vegetables that are good for you into a noodle-like dish. The only tool you will need is a spiralizer. These can easily be found online and are inexpensive. Also, they are easy to assemble, use and wash afterwards.

Vegetables that you can use include zucchini, parsnips, sweet potatoes, turnips, broccoli, and even carrots. And your spiralizer can also be used to make sweet potato curly fries, salads, Chinese lo mein noodles, roasted root vegetables, and veggie spirals for delicious, homemade soup.

This is one of the healthiest and most beneficial ways to change your diet. You won't feel you are missing anything because these veggie noodles taste as good as traditional pasta.
