I finally fell victim to the zucchini noodle trend. I’ve been seeing it flying around Pinterest and initially wrote if off because, you know, Pinterest lies. But after hearing a couple rave reviews, I tried it out. To my surprise, it was actually really tasty and not too difficult.
There are a bunch of recipes out there, but here’s what I did.
Zucchini Linguine with Heirloom Tomato Sauce
Ingredients: Serves 2
- 1 large zucchini — the one I used was the size of a caveman club
- 2 large heirloom tomatoes (cubed)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic (diced)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 6 leave fresh basil (chopped)
- Salt and pepper
To prepare the zucchini:
Step 1: Shave the zucchini lengthwise with a carrot peeler to create long, even strips. Stop shaving once you reach the seeds. Use all four sides of the zucchini.
