Zucchini noodles, known in the plant-based world as Zoodles, are a great alternative to regular pasta, especially if you are looking for a gluten free option. They can be used for all kinds of noodle-based dishes and pack a ton of texture and nutrition into this Thai flavored recipe. The longer the zoodles sit in the sauce the more flavor they absorb, so Zoodle leftovers are always a treat!
