Zucchini “Pasta”

This is definitely low carb “pasta”! Top with marinara sauce or make meatballs and sauce to go on top. What a great way to use in-season zucchini


3 medium zucchini or summer squash

2 tablespoons olive oil

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon of lemon zest

1-2 tablespoons freshly chopped basil

Optional toppings: pasta sauce, parmesan cheese, basil, tomatoes


Wash zucchini, remove ends and cut into long thin strips. Discard the core and seeds for this recipe.  In a skillet, add oil on medium heat.  Add half your noodles, you will need to cook in two batches.  Add half the salt and lemon zest; toss and cook for 3-4 minutes.  Halfway through, add half of your basil and cook until noodles are soft.  Repeat with the second batch of noodles and serve immediately with sauce topped with cheese or tomatoes.
