Zucchini Spaghetti

We were going to a community dinner and everyone was supposed to be bringing spaghetti, but being in a certain phase of a certain diet, couldn't do the starches. Then I remembered seeing on Iron Chef America something about using zucchini instead of pasta so I julianned some zucchini into strips and steamed them and put spaghetti sauce on them (just store bought with some ground beef). I called it zucchini spaghetti. :)

It turned out great! The zucchini had more of a texture than spaghetti, so the sauce stuck better. Even my kid liked it and she says she doesn't like zucchini otherwise. It was weird giving a recipe out to the ladies there.
