The zucchini noodles are an awesome sub for carby noodles. It works well in Italian dishes (and I even have my Italian boyfriend asking for them!). For me, I don't like spaghetti squash with more than just cheese or a light cream sauce. Something about the sweetness of the squash doesn't work with marinara for my palate.
I used to eat a lot of tempeh, seitan, mycoprotien, TVP, etc, but I'm gluten free now, so I only buy them once in a while for the kiddo for emergency food in pre-made nugget, burger, sausage, or sandwich form.
