Directions

  1. Cut lengthwise slices from zucchini using a vegetable peeler, stopping when the seeds are reached. Turn zucchini over and continue 'peeling' until all the zucchini is in long strips; discard seeds. Slice the zucchini into thinner strips resembling spaghetti.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini in the hot oil for 1 minute. Add water and cook until zucchini is softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Five stars alone, just for the idea. But since zucchini doesn’t have a whole lot of flavor on its own, this needs some seasoning – just plain garlic comes to mind, tho’ I used Penzey’s Fox Point Seasoning, which is a light seasoning, perfect for vegetables. Since I had chicken broth leftover from another dish, I used it in place of the water which I hope contributed a little flavor as well as making use of something I had open. Depending on how thick you cut your zucchini, use the 5-7 minutes cooking time only as a guide. Zucchini cooks quickly, so be careful not to overcook.

I make my own sauce with 1 can crushed tomatoes, 1/4 cup olive oil, 3 cloves minced garlic and some fresh basil. Served over the zucchini with some parmesan cheese.

This is a great way to serve zucchini! You can top it w/ your favorite sauce, or keep it simple for an easy side dish. I just bought a julienne cutter, so I used that, and it was perfect for this! The kids thought this was so fun. I will be making this again, and I can't wait to try it w/ different sauces~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
