Low Carb and Delicious!



Do you love Italian cuisine, but hate the carbs from the pasta? Here is the perfect alternative to solve that problem... Use a spiralizer to make noodles out of zucchini or squash.

Zucchini Noodles - Low Carb Alternative

Ingredients:
6 zucchini
2 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons margarine or 3 tablespoons butter
1 garlic clove (optional)
1⁄4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:
Cut zucchini into noodles using a spiralizer or mandolin.
Toss noodles with 2 teaspoons salt, and place in a colander to drain for 30 minutes.
Bring a pot of water to boil. Add zucchini; cook for one minute. Drain; rinse immediately with cold water to stop cooking.
Heat margarine/butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add zucchini and garlic; cook and stir until just tender, about 5 minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
