veggetti review

A few years back a friend made me a dish with zucchini pasta. We both had to be gluten free, and although I was hesitant at first – I ended up loving it! Since then I’ve been on a quest to find something affordable like she had to make my own veggie pasta. The problem I had was the cost, or finding a product that actually made noodles not just chunked my veggies into strips.

I was sent a Veggetti to try out, and yes – it is an As Seen on TV product! But don’t let that dissuade you, not only does it work, but the cost wont break the bank! It is one of those products that break the stigma that As Seen on TV products aren’t worth the money!

The Veggetti can be used on any firm vegetable. Make sure your veggies are fresh and firm in order to use it. I actually used zucchinis that were in my crisper for a few days, and it worked perfectly.

You can shred vegetables into thin spaghetti noodles, or on the thick setting your noodles will turn out into linguine style noodles. To change the size of your noodles you just flip the Veggetti over and start turning it.

So how does it work? You simply put your vegetable into the open end and start turning it with your hand. If your vegetable is fresh, it should turn with ease and you will notice strips of the veggie coming out of the opening on the side. I found it easiest for the noodles to fall right into the colander. If your veggie is too large to fit in, you can cut it into smaller pieces and then start turning it. I tried this with some giant garden zucchinis I was given, but since the cuts are square a lot of the shreds come out as short noodles instead of long pasta like ones. That doesn’t work the best for pasta, but would be great for hashes!

Once your pasta is shredded you will be left over with some odd shaped cones of the zucchini. Basically the blossom end of the zucchini and what can’t be shredded. You can either compost these, or slice them up and top them or use them in another recipe. Also, inside the removeable cap on the end you’re not using you’ll find some little chunks that are left over. For me these were destined for the compost!

The Veggetti is hand wash only – my only caution with this is the blades inside. Be careful washing around them – they’re sharp, how else do they shred so well? But otherwise a quick clean and the Veggetti is ready to use again.

I loved how easy it was to make a zucchini pasta with the Veggetti and the healthy meal option. No, it’s not pasta made from dough but it is a great alternative for someone who is gluten free or wanting to have a non-dough pasta. Just imagine all the pasta salads you could make with it! The zucchini noodles not only held up better than most gluten free noodle options, but they looked like pasta and even felt like pasta!

  1. My husband and I are going back on our healthy eating lifestyle (Due any day) as soon as our baby is born. And we LOVE my mothers homemade spagetti but pasta is too many calories. I was wondering how this would work before buying one.

  2. In a week or so, I am going to have zucchini out my ears because I am growing them. I have green and yellow zucchini and it would be fun to make zucchini spaghetti with this handy gadget. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  3. I think some varietys of vegetables smothered in alfredo sauce would be delicious to make with this. Like a veggie string pasta dish.

  4. I would make a vegetarian pasta dish with squash and carrots and a homemade tomato sauce with tomatoes from the garden.

  5. Oh course it would be fun to make a colorful swirl of vegetable noodles using summer squash, carrots, potatoes ~ or other root veggies: yams, parships, turnips, beets! ~ And lots of daikon radish/carrots garnishes! And of course having fun with all kinds of refreshing variations on cucumber salads…

  6. I love cucumber salad, actually crave it during the hot summer days. I would try this with cucumbers and hopefully it would work just perfectly 😉

  7. I have already printed out some recipes that call for zucchini ribbons. One has the zucchini, along with garlic, chopped tomatoes, olive oil and basil.
