Noodles & Company Is Offering Healthy Zoodle Alternatives to Their Pasta Menu

Noodles & Company is one of those easy-going restaurants we swear we would eat at every day if it didn’t mean packing on some major carb-related pounds—but it seems as if our prayers have been answered. The popular counter-serve food chain specializing in all things pasta is taking advantage of the zoodle (zucchini noodle) health food trend to accommodate those loyal customers who are looking to watch their calorie count. These new health-conscious recipes will be available May 2nd. And trust us—they are extremely satisfying. Made from fresh zucchinis, spiraled in-house daily, the all-new Zucchini Romesco and Zucchini Thai Green Curry with shrimp are the perfect light solution for your pasta-loving taste buds. The Zucchini Romesco offers the sweet and tangy taste of a roasted red pepper sauce with almonds, sundried tomatoes, and garden veggies while the Zucchini Thai Green Curry unites a coconut green curry sauce with pineapple, broccoli, red onion, snap peas, lime, black sesame seed, and cilantro. Need we say more? These recipes seem to speak for themselves. Just to make you feel even better about your choice to go zoodle, a regular bowl of zucchini noodles only has about 11 grams of carbs and 60 calories—not to mention this option is accommodating to all gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian diets. For the devote pasta lovers out there, we don’t take healthy substitutes lightly. If we are going to give up pasta every now and then, it must be done right. Luckily zoodles do the job well, with their subtle flavoring, crispy texture, and versatility, making the switch is worth a shot. Usually, the healthiest options at any restaurant do not promise a budget-friendly price tag. A small bowl from Noodles & Company starts at $5.75 while a regular bowl costs $7.25. To substitute zoodles in any noodle dish, you will face an upcharge of $0.75—if you don't like the substitute, no problem, Noodles & Company will replace the dish with a traditional pasta free of charge.   Who says summer bod prep can’t taste good too? We aren’t willing to compromise on flavor, and this way you won’t have to either.
