  1. Cut zucchini into thin, noodle-like strips (a mandoline works well for this). Toss with the 2 teaspoons salt, and place in a colander to drain for 30 minutes.
  2. Bring a pot of water to boil. Add zucchini; cook for one minute. Drain; rinse immediately with cold water to stop cooking.
  3. Heat margarine in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add zucchini and garlic; cook and stir until just tender, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I wasn't looking to use this as a noodle base for sauce, but rather as a simple veggie accompaniment. It was perfect. Wonderful flavor that I don't think I would WANT to mask with a sauce! I mad...

I used my vegetable peeler and made strands that way. I skipped the butter step at the end, and just sprayed with a zero calorie spray margarine. I topped with jarred fat free spaghetti sauce...

This was a great alternative to eating my spagetti sauce with rice. The zucchini has great taste.

I grated with a potato peeler and sauteed in olive oil and butter; salt and pepper and topped with my own version of healthy spaghetti sauce including red peppers, mushrooms, onion, garlic and j...

Very good! Next time I will let the zucchini sweat for a little longer than 30 minutes. I cut my zucchini by hand (I really should get a mandoline slicer!), so it wasn't all that thin, but the r...
