Zoodles and Things With Basil Cream

Zoodles, the healthy alternative to pasta!  I just got a new spiralizer, so, I decided that I must have some zoodles.  Zucchini is a somewhat bland vegetable, but when it is topped with Basil Cream Sauce, it is excellent.  We combined the zoodles with tomatoes, pickled cabbage, rice noodles, carrots and topped with Basil Cream and toasted pine nuts.  Great for lunch or dinner.
