Creamy White Wine Zoodles

Creamy White Wine Zoodles (via I am really into creating meals that consist of lots of veggies and remain grain-free. I do not eat this way for every meal, but I like the challenge, and I feel like it not only pushes me to be a bit more creative, it also has the effect of getting even more vegetables into my meals. A total win, win, obviously. 🙂

This meal is no exception. It doesn’t skimp on comfort and flavor (it’s got a little butter, wine, AND cheese), but it also packs in quite a few vegetables and remains grain-free. Mmmm.

Creamy White Wine Zoodles (via I love this as a light meal for two, kind of like good salads but a cooked version. It makes a great lunch, which is promptly when we ate the pictured version you see here. 🙂 But, if you are wanting to make this even more substantial and add some protein, you might try adding chickpeas, shrimp, or grilled salmon. I love this all on its own though.

Best zoodle recipesCreamy White Wine Zoodles, serves two

3 medium zucchini, spiralized
1/2 red or orange bell pepper
2 tablespoons chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup white wine (I like Chardonnay here)
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
half a lemon

In a large pan begin by melting the butter and oil together. Add the onions and bell pepper and let that cook until just softened, 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Add in the garlic and let cook another minute. Pour in the wine and let that cook until it reduces slightly, about 3-4 minutes.

Grain free mealsNow add the zoodles and red pepper flakes. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Cook the zoodles for 2-3 minutes until they soften a bit and begin to release some liquid. As you cook, toss everything so it all gets coated in the butter/wine sauce well. Then toss in the Parmesan, again making sure everything gets coated in the cheese as well as sauce. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed.

  • Your red wine mushroom pasta is a staple in my home – adding this one to the list! 😉

  • That sounds so delicious, it’s great how you can transform the basic sauce into anything you like with just a few other ingredients. Now I’m hungry!

  • Looks so good! I’m not the best cook but I’d love to try this! Never put wine in any of my meals but I need to try x


  • I believe that fork is Kate Spade. I have a pretty random collection of flatware, so sometimes I forget where they are all from but I am nearly certain that one is from a Kate Spade set.


  • This looks sooo good. I’m always on the lookout for new zoodle recipes now that I have a spiraliser. This is one I need to add to my to-make list.
