Healthy Pasta Made From Zucchini

Spiralized Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Avocado Sauce 

I found this recipe for non pasta "pasta" at The Watering Mouth and knew I had to share.  But there was one problem, I don't have a spiral slicer!  Can you believe it?? I know I know.. I am sheltered...I have been DYING.. ok ok not dying, maybe just suffering mild anxiety feeling totally left out that I might be the only person left on the planet that does not have a spiral slicer!? 

But then I got the call....  It was fate that FINALLY after seeing this recipe I will have one of these majic slicer/kung fu/bad @ss kitchen gadgets in my hands. See this past Friday, August 23rd to be exact, was my birthday, and umm I celebrated the second anniversary of my 15.5 birthday... okok I turned 31, I don't know how that happened, but it did! So... my dear sis knows that I love to cook and asked me to tell her what new small gadet I would like to get for a gift this year.  HELLO, LIKE A SPIRAL SLICER O-M-G - in that totally valley girl voice and everything.  So there you have it, in just a few days this puppy will be mine ohh mine, move over potato peeler!
