Garlic Zucchini Spirals

So I pretty much refuse to refer to veggies cut with a spiral-cutter as “noodles,” but that doesn’t make them any less awesome.  This was a great side dish, and if you were so inclined, you could make a main dish out of it as well.  Standby, we may even be trying this in March. 😉  Anyway, this is a prep method we will definitely continue to use.  This was tossed with garlic, red pepper flakes, and a little bit of parm to go with a main dish.

  • 1-2 zucchini
  • 1 small clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or SmartBalance, etc.
  • Crushed red pepper flakes as needed
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • sprinkling of shredded parmesan cheese

Rinse and dry zucchini. Peel if necessary and julienne zucchini.  Mince 1 clove of garlic and add into a medium sized skillet.  Add in 1 Tbsp. of butter or substitute and saute garlic lightly.

Add in zucchini and saute until tender. Remove zucchini noodles from heat and add in pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and sprinkle with cheese.
