COMMENTS: You may use many vegetables to create veggette. I find that zucchini is the best fit for my taste. I’ve also tried broccoli stems. The trick is not to over cook the vegetables. Leave them aldente as much as possible. Keep in mind that they will be cooked a little more when you introduce the hot meatballs to the dish also. If they’re too soggy, use a large strainer to remove the excess liquid. I sometimes just soak up the excess with wads of paper towels.

    Recently I’ve been trying low carb recepies. I decided to purchase spirallizer that works great as a spegettee maker or a vegitti maker. I’ve only liked making the one type of vegitti, zuchinni. I also purchased a book on different receipies but still keep coming back to zucchini.
