Cooking In Heels: Zucchini "Pasta"
I love zucchini. I usually roast it or grill it. I recently bought a spiralizer after seeing a few recipes on youtube for raw zucchini recipes. I decided to try making zuchini "pasta" for an easy quick dinner. It came out delicious, I could eat it every night. Here is the super easy recipe.
2 tablespoons olive oil
4-5 zucchini, julienned, spiraled about 7 cups
2 yellow squash, julienned, spiraled about 3 cups
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from about 1 large lemon)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tablespoon minced lemon zest
Saute the julienne zucchini and squash. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until slightly wilted, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Cook for 1-2 minutes more until fork tender.
Take off the heat and stir in parmesan cheese, basil, parsley and lemon juice. Drizzle with olive oil, serve immediately. Enjoy!
