By Alexandra Caspero on May 18, 2017

Are we still loving vegetable noodles? I received an email request a few weeks ago from a reader asking for more veggie noodle recipes (also, more than just zucchini). While I’ve got a few of my own, I know this is an are that I need to do more development in. So, I reached out to some favorite blogger friends and asked for their best vegan and vegetarian noodle recipes
