(KTVI) - As a wife and busy mom of three kids, twin toddlers and a nine month old, Kyla Flodberg doesn't have time to waste in the kitchen. She strives to serve her family quick but nutritious meals.
The Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Cutter claims it can turn zucchini, squash, carrots and other vegetables into healthy pasta dishes with just a twist. Veggetti comes with a recipe guide of vegetable-based entrees and side dishes.
Flodberg followed the recipe guide to make zucchini noodles with homemade marinara sauce, honey glazed carrots and sweet potato pancakes.
Veggetti claims it's quick and easy to use. Its dishwasher safe and retails for less than $20.
"The carrots were a lot more work," Flodberg said. "The sweet potatoes were tough to put through too. It wasn't as easy as the zucchini. I think I'd be more likely to do zucchini noodles a little more often. But the sweet potato pancakes were definitely worth it. They were worth the work."
Flodberg calls Veggetti a deal.
"I feel so much better about giving my kids, my family a pasta made from zucchini noodles or sweet potatoes or carrots or squash versus pasta, even whole wheat pasta."
