  1. So did you guys end up buying a spiraliser? I am keen but wanted a quick review / price. Some are cheap, some expensive and I’m just not sure if there is much difference. What have you guys found? ?

  2. Hi Alice! No we haven’t yet! We used a julienne peeler and it works really well and was like $6! BUT we are definitely going to get one and we’ll do a post about it when we do 🙂 e + c

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe! I was more than sceptical about zucchini ‘pasta’ and had seen recipes in the past, but this is the first one I’ve tried. This dish make me so happy!!! I am dairy free paleo, so left out the cheese and I actually added some mushrooms! Yum yum yum!!

  5. Loved it! I added a shredded poached chicken breast, and some ground walnuts and fresh oregano to the eggs. Yum.
