Zucchini Noodles

A great pasta substitute.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. With a good potato peeler create long "noodles" by starting at the top of the zucchini and peeling wide ribbons down the length of the zucchini.
  2. Continue making ribbons as you turn the zucchini to get all the green part off first.
  3. When the center portion becomes too thin , set it aside to use for a salad and start a new zucchini.
  4. Heat a large skillet on medium high.
  5. Add the olive oil and zucchini "noodles."
  6. Saute the "noodles" for 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Season with freshly grated black pepper and salt if desired to taste.
  8. Serve with your favorite pasta sauce. I like to eat these with red sauce & meatballs!

I loved this! You can do the same thing with cabage, just shred it to resemble noodles and steam. yum!

These were so awesome that my KIDS asked me to make more. My husband ate every bite. I added a little spray butter and very little salt.

This was really tasty and very easy to get together. The "noodles" shrink quite a bit though, so make more than you think you need. Two zucchini would definitely not be enough for two people.

Use low sodium broth instead of the oil and, of course, no salt and butter.
I made this and my kids are crazy for it. It tastes really good with a little pasta sauce and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Will definitely make again.
