What is it called?

Postby clothmama » Mon Jun 15, 2015 7:28 pm

I'm trying to reduce my carbs and have started using corgettes cut up finely instead of pasta. it takes ages with a knife but I'm sure I've read of a machine that can turn veg into pasta. Anyone know what it is called so I can look for one?

Is it possible to use a peeler if you don't have the other fancy thingy? ..... Off to look the fancy thingy up......

Yes thinking that I could peel then slice which would be heaps quicker (why didn't I think of that :doh: ). Also just read a suggestion to use a julienne peeler which I have seen around but don't have one which would be a cheap option and I can mainly see my self doing corgettes so I think would work well (although the machines turn out cool veggies!)
