Meatless Monday: No Carb Zucchini Pasta

Meatless Monday: No Carb Zucchini Pasta

I very rarely order pasta at an Italian restaurant, as I know it is a diet no-no, and instead sadly opt for a safe (boring) piece of salmon.  Just because I don't order it, doesn't mean I don't crave it.

I've found an answer to my woes: Zucchini Pasta.

Zucchini Pasta

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 Clove Garlic

6 Zucchinis, peeled

Salt and Pepper

Shredded Parmesan

1. Use the carrot peeler on the zucchini to create long pasta like noodles.

2. Sauté with olive oil, salt and pepper for a few minutes.

3. Optional: top with shredded Parmesan.

The vegetable looked and smelled right out of Little Italy and my son, husband and I gobbled it down.  I wish I had made more!

The six zucchinis do not create a huge portion, so use more if you are serving many people.  Also, squash works well alone or combined with the zucchini for this dish.

I have a zucchini plant flowering in the garden.  My fingers are crossed I'll have a big bounty for a heaping batch of Zucchini Pasta.
