I got an invitation for a family event last night, and zoodles are on the menu.

Merriam-Webster dates it to 1991 in an entry for “zoodle" (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/zoodle <https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/zoodle>) and Wiktionary (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/zoodles <https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/zoodles>) claims the singular form does not exist. The English OLD and Wikipedia do not cover it.
