Tomato Parmesan Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles)

Julie Wunder
Making “pasta” out of zucchini or zoodles is simple and easy with a spiralizer! Use them to fix my Tomato Parmesan Zoodles, which are absolutely delicious.

Ingredients
  

  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ sweet or white onion, chopped
  • 1 ½ teaspoon minced garlic, 3 cloves
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • pinch of red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 medium zucchini, spiralized on large setting (about 4 cups)
  • ¼ chopped fresh basil & oregano, ¼ cup total
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ½ cup shaved parmesan

Instructions
 

  • In a nonstick pan over medium heat sauté the onions in the olive oil for 3-5 minutes or until starting to turn translucent.
  • Turn the heat down to low and allow the pan to cool a touch.
  • Add the garlic and sauté for thirty seconds or until just starting to become fragrant.
  • Add the cherry tomatoes, red pepper and half of the salt and pepper to pan and combine well.
  • Cover with lid and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Turn heat back up to medium and add zucchini. Sautee for 2 minutes. Don't overcook. You still want the zucchini to have some bite.
  • Add the lemon and herbs in the last 30 seconds of cooking.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in half the parmesan. Garnish with the other half.

Notes

I put my dish in a serving dish and then add the parmesan so it doesn't get stuck to my hot pan.[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent="yes" overflow="visible"][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type="1_1" background_position="left top" background_color="" border_size="" border_color="" border_style="solid" spacing="yes" background_image="" background_repeat="no-repeat" padding="" margin_top="0px" margin_bottom="0px" class="" id="" animation_type="" animation_speed="0.3" animation_direction="left" hide_on_mobile="no" center_content="no" min_height="none"]
The servings are a bit smaller for my hungry hubby so I added a whole wheat roll and salad to round out the meal.
