Recipe Ingredients for Zucchini "Pasta"

4 medium Squash, Summer, Zucchini, Includes Skin
1 tbsp Olive Oil
0.25 cup Parmesan, Grated Cheese
1 dash Pepper, Black
1 dash Salt, Table

Recipe Directions for Zucchini "Pasta"

  1. Rinse the zucchini well and cut off the ends. Lay the zucchini down on the cutting board and use a vegetable peeler to shave it into ribbons. Once you've shaved down to the center of the zucchini, roll it 1/4 the way around and start shaving again. Repeat this until you can shave no more.

  2. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once it is hot, add the zucchini ribbons. Saute, stirring carefully, until the zucchini has softened and turned bright green (about 7-10 minutes). Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to taste.

  3. Use tongs to remove the zucchini ribbons from the skillet (there will be quite a bit of moisture in the bottom of the skillet) and place into serving bowls. Sprinkle with about 1 Tbsp of parmesan cheese per serving just before eating.
