First remove the outer skin of you zucchini. For 2 people I use about 3 zucchini and I usually have something else with it. Next with your vegetable peeler, create your ribbons all the way down one side of the zucchini until you reach the seed core. Turn to next side and repeat. (sorry no pictures!)
Next in a large pan, add a dash of olive oil and a tiny bit of butter, dash of salt and pepper (to liking). Heat pan to medium or medium high heat (we have an old stove so we have to use medium high, so it depends on your stove). Add your noodles.
Sautee your noodles for about 10 minutes. You don't want them soggy but you don't want them to be crisp either. If you go too far they will turn out like this (I got distracted while cooking)
Yup they shrunk but now you know what not to do!
Next, add your sauce. I opted for alfredo sauce. Mix while in the pan and serve!
OMG they are delish! My boyfriend loves them. I mean loves them! You are fuller longer after eating these noodles rather than being hungry an hour later like with regular pasta. We love them so much we are now trying to cook them once a week for dinner. Hope to try new combos with seasoning and sauces. Mom would be proud I'm eating more vegetables.
Here's to more posts soon and healthy eating! :)
