The zucchini season is coming right up. If you had planted them in your garden in the past, you know they can grow out of control in terms of size! Even if you don’t have them in the garden, you can tell that they are one abundant squash to grow, when you can get 10 of them with just a buck! It sounds more like the farmers are just trying to get rid of them, fast!
Besides adding zucchini in salads, or making zucchini bread, this Zucchini “Pasta” is a great way to use up the zucchinis that you have in stock. Plus, this dish is very figure friendly, too. So, you can prepare this more often and be ready for your summer/bikini look! If you’re looking for a quick, low carb and healthy meal, this dish is going to be your friend during this Spring and Summer. Check out the video tutorial to see how I made it!

2 medium size zucchini, washed
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons pesto (I used homemade one, click here for recipe)
Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
a pinch of red pepper flakes
a few Parmigiano-Reggiano shaves, optional
First, removed and discard the stems on the ends of the zucchini. Then, cut the zucchini in half. Insert the finger guard of the vegetable slicer onto the cut side of the zucchini. Then, insert the zucchini into the cutter and turn the finger guard, similar to sharpening a pencil. (I used a medium size slicer)
Repeat until all zucchini are sliced. Then, heat a large skillet on high heat with a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the zucchini pasta into the skillet. Gently toss with a spatula for even cooking. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the pesto and mix well. Remove from heat and sprinkle on the red chili flakes and parmigiano-Reggiano shaves. Enjoy!
