Once you try zucchini noodles, there’s no going back. Zucchini noodles (aka zoodles) make it 100x easier to eat healthier and to still enjoy all of your favorite pasta dishes guilt free. Healthy zoodles cooked in butter, garlic and parmesan, this extremely flavorful and fragrant dish makes an unbelievably delicious and healthy dinner in under 10 minutes.
In order to make this recipe we recommend purchasing a spiralizer, which is an inexpensive tool that turns fresh veggies into faux-noodles. It isn’t just for the carb-averse; everyone, from home cooks to restaurant chefs, are spiralizing.
2-3 medium zucchini, spiralized
2 Tablespoons butter
2-3 large cloves garlic, minced Coupons
⅓ cup parmesan cheese, grated
salt, pepper, & crushed red pepper to taste
1. Spiralize zucchini into thin noodles using a spiralizer.
2. Heat large pan on medium-high heat. Melt butter, then add garlic. Cook garlic until fragrant (about 1-2 minutes). Be careful not to burn garlic.
3. Add the zucchini noodles and grated parmesan cheese and salt & pepper to taste. Cook for 1-2 minutes or just until the zoodles are al dente.
Remove from heat and serve immediately. Top with more parmesan and crushed red pepper flakes if desired.
*After spiralizing zucchini, place spiralized zucchini on a few paper towels and sprinkle with a light layer of salt. Cover with another paper towel and rest for a few minutes. This will help draw the liquid out of the zucchini. This step is optional but highly recommended.
