Zoodles with mushroom cream-cheese sauce

Zoodles are spiralized zucchini and can replace spaghetti for a low calorie/carb meal. For some people portion sizes are an important detail when it comes to losing weight. They are afraid of not getting enough food on the plate. Zoodles allow you to fill your bowl brimful and they give you a satisfying feeling after your meal.

There are several kind of spiralizers - I don't have any specific brand I could recommend but find some inspiration below.
