Italian Deli Pinwheels

 

Italian Deli Pinwheels - Chew Nibble Nosh

Remember that outdoor concert I went to?  The one I where I brought those sweet little blueberry cheesecakes?  Well, I brought these fabulous little pinwheels there too.  My friend Lynda was generous enough to share the recipe with me after we enjoyed them immensely at our Indy 500 picnic back in May, and I’ve been looking for a reason to make them ever since.  Thankfully, this concert popped up, and it was the perfect reason to break out Lynda’s recipe.

Spiralized Italian Pasta Salad

Spiralized Italian Pasta Salad - Chew Nibble Nosh.

Zucchini noodles seem to be all the rage right now and spiralizers are moving from a fancy garnish tool to an everyday kitchen gadget. My friends at OXO asked me to try out their new Hand Held Spiralizer, and of course, I told them I’d love to give it a try!

What to make, though?  As I was trying to figure out what to tackle first with my new gadget, I ran across an old recipe, written on a postcard, from my mother.  I have no idea where this recipe came from.  Probably from the pages of an old, yellowed cooking magazine or from one of her gazillion cookbooks (I come by my book hoarding tendencies honestly).  It’s simply written on a notecard, and this delicious, blast-from-the-past spaghetti salad struck me as the perfect thing to modernize with a little spiralize.
