Creative cooking requires a little investment into kitchen appliances. Would you ever consider spiralizing butternut squash and then stuffing it with strips of beef and spaghetti along with green and yellow summer squash?

If you are looking for something appetizing to cook, while equally showing off your culinary skills, try adding these two affordable tools to your cookware.

Two Affordable Creative Cooking Tools

Veggetti: This tool has been around, but I recently decided to try it. You can buy them online through Amazon, from their website, or at home good stores.

Over the 4th of July weekend, I purchased the Veggetti from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I love Bed, Bath, and Beyond because of the 20% off coupons that never expire.

Using the Veggetti, I found it to be simple to use and did what it claimed. I really was able to turn summer squash into veggie-spaghetti.

The Veggetti comes in a couple of sizes. There is a larger Veggetti machine that does more of the work for you. I purchased the manual version, which was just under $10.

Pineapple Corer Slicer: Again, I bought this at Bed, Bath and Beyond at the same time that I purchased the Veggetti. If you get a large enough butternut squash, you can spiral it, making it a beautiful and edible dish.

Creative Cooking: Spiral Your Veggies
Recipe type: Dinner
  • Extra large butternut squash
  • 2 green summer squash
  • 1 yellow summer squash
  • .5 lb. of thinly sliced beef
  1. Spiral veggies with veggetti or a spiral vegetable slicer.
  2. Cut top off butternut squash, then use pineapple corer to spiral out the inside. Cut off any excess skin that wasn't cut off by the spiral slicer.

I chose not to cut the skin off from my butternut squash. Most of the inner core was cut out from the hard outer skin. There was just a small section left that had skin remaining, so I scraped it off with the knife. You can also use a skin remover too and cut the skin off in advance.

Sautéed Spaghetti Veggies

To make your veggies look like more like spaghetti made out of vegetables the cook time do not cook it too well. I chose to cook it well along with the beef.


Are you a fan of Trader Joe’s? Do you like soy sauce? Try the new  Trader Joe’s Organic Coconut Aminos, it rivals Braggs Liquid Aminos and is a healthier alternative to soy sauce.

    • I know, I wish I would have gotten the machine. I think I’m going to go back to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and get a motorized one. It was more fun than I thought to turn veggies into pasta. A future recipe I think I’ll make is vegetarian pasta. 🙂

    • It is great to make things like this especially when entertaining guests. But the veggie pasta maker is cool if you want to turn veggies into pasta and add pasta sauce. I think it’s one way I can get my daughter to eat more veggies. 🙂

    • Thanks, Ipuna cooking is a great way to experiment in the kitchen and eat more at home. It also allows you to cook in a healthy way like using Coconut Amino Acids to your meals. 🙂

    • Yeah, it’s really cool. I enjoyed using it and think that I eventually get the larger Veggetti machine. I think they named the tool properly, it’s quite catchy. 🙂

  1. This is healthy and a great idea, putting twist on squash recipe. I love how the ingredients were cut. I hope I can find a kitchen stuff that will easily do the cutting of different shapes and sizes for me.

    • I know, I love the way it can make things much more creative in the kitchen. It’s crazy because I never ever used to cook. I hated cooking and now, I have a love for it. 🙂
