Zucchini Noodles with Tomato/Basil Sauce

I haven’t used my spiralizer in a long time. But when I got more zucchini in my CSA box, I knew I had to use it to make some zucchini noodles. Now, in my opinion, the “noodles” sort of look like noodles, but they don’t taste like noodles. But it’s a very fun and tasty way to eat zucchini.

I started by spiralizing the zucchini.

Then I made a simple tomato/basil sauce.

Tomato/Basil Sauce

  • Tomatoes (I used about a cup of grape tomatoes)
  • Basil (I used 5 big leaves)
  • Garlic (I used 1 clove)
  • Olive oil (I used 1 teaspoon)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Feta cheese, to sprinkle over the finished dish
I put all ingredients, except the feta cheese, in a food processor and pureed them.

Then, I topped the zucchini noodles with the tomato/basil sauce and a little feta cheese.

The tomato/basil sauce was very flavorful and went really well with the zucchini noodles. It was a quick, fun, and tasty lunch! I see myself eating this dish a lot during the summer!

Questions: Have you ever made “vegetable noodles?” If so, did you like them? I have mainly made zucchini noodles with my spiralizer, and I like them a lot. While they do not taste like noodles to me, it’s a delicious and fun way to eat zucchini. What would you like to see me spiralize next? I need some ideas…

Be well,
