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 made these with alfredo sauco. They were wonderful! I did not let them brown so they were more like fettucine for me. Great recipe!

I really liked this one, made it last weekend while we were out camping. Hubby had a baked potatoe and I had the "noodles". YUM!
It was good but it was rather bland. I added homemade pasta (4 points) helped but it needed something else. I didn't expect it but it was slightly crunch. I'm a huge pasta fan I could eat pasta every night if I could. I had this with flank steak, pesto, and a Hawaiian roll for just 13 points (the roll was 3). I have to admit though it was quite filling!

I did this last night, and I think I might like zucchini pasta more than regular! The grocery store better stock up for me.

Wow, this actually work very well when paired with a meat-flavored spaghetti sauce...I never missed the pasta!

I would "water saute" and serve like zuch fries! No oil or fried breading is necessary! No juicing is necessary! (for you juicers who haven't figured out how to quit juicing and still attending McDonald's)just eat them as they are supposed to be eaten! Fiber, and away!

This sounds great! We use spaghetti squash in place of pasta for spaghetti, but zucchini would be even more diet friendly for me and my bf. We're going to try it. Thank you!
