This recipe is more about a unique kitchen tool versus the actual recipe. My fridge was full of leftover zucchini from these cookies and my stomach needed a break from desserts. I had just made these turkey meatballs and needed some pasta to eat them with. I had heard of a julienne peeler once or twice before but didn’t really know what it was. But I was determined to find one! Ventured over to Target but they only had one in a three pack with other types of peelers…which I already had or didn’t need. Thank goodness for Ace Hardware’s kitchen section (random, I know).

whole wheat spaghetti
