Fresh Zucchini Noodles
4-6 medium sized zucchini
1 garlic clove
Using a box grater you will create spaghetti like noodles to be used in your favorite pasta dishes. Place the grater on its side with the large holes up. Run the zucchini along the grater to create noodle-like pieces.
Zucchini is high in water content, so you’ll need to sweat the noodles before using them. Heat your oven to 200 degrees. Line a baking tray with paper towels and place the zucchini noodles flat. Lightly salt the zucchini and then place the tray in the oven for 30 minutes. This helps to “sweat out” the moisture and make the noodles ready to cook with.
To cook the noodles place them in a saucepan with olive oil and garlic. Saute the noodles for 3-4 minutes and they’re ready to be used in your pasta recipes!
A healthier alternative to standard starchy pasta, zucchini noodles are perfect when you have tons of squash. Perfect for a warm day, zucchini noodles will leave you feeling fresh and fulfilled!
