Zesty Zucchini Pasta

Submitted by: PENELOPECAT

Introduction

Saw something on the Biggest Loser about substituting shredded zucchini for half the pasta in a dish. Tried it and I gotta say I love it. Saw something on the Biggest Loser about substituting shredded zucchini for half the pasta in a dish. Tried it and I gotta say I love it.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 zucchini 10oz/300g
    1 oz spaghetti noodles cooked per package directions
    1 tsp garlic minced
    1/2-1 tbsp Olive Oil (use more or less as you prefer)
    1/4-1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper
    splash of lemon juice
    salt/pepper to taste

Directions

This dish serves 2 easily or one really filling bowl if you don't feel like sharing.

Boil pasta as per package directions. I used a veggie peeler to just make long ribbons out of the zucchini but I imagine you can cut it any way you fancy.

Saute the garlic in oil in a large skillet, add zucchini and toss to coat with a bit of the oil, do NOT overcook, add spaghetti noodles and toss with the crushed red pepper, lemon juice and season to taste with salt or pepper if needed.
