Zuchetti is my new favorite pasta. Or vegetable. Whatever. It’s zucchini julienned or put through a spiralizer and then eaten like spaghetti! And dang, it’s delicious! Zucchini is one of those vegetables that doesn’t have a ton of flavor and just sucks up whatever flavor you put on it which makes it perfect as a pasta substitute. I have used both a julienne peeler and recently invested in a spiralizer. When it comes to big jobs like this where I need 3+ zucchini sliced, the spiralizer has my vote. For garnish, the peeler works better. This is the Spiralizer I bought. It makes quick work of spiralizing anything and I love it.
1 Zucchini per person
Salt and pepper
Enough sauce for however much zucchini you have. Go off of how much you make for spaghetti normally
1. Spiral or julienne zucchini. It will look like a lot, but it does cook down
2. Heat EVOO in a big pan and then add salt and pepper
3. Saute until zucchini is almost soft but not quite. Think al dente pasta.
4.Top with sauce and cheese if desired. I just use sauce and butter =]
