(225)

A tasty and fairly simple way for people on a gluten-free or wheat-free diet to enjoy a noodle dish. I usually use 4 zucchini and 2 summer squash for a colorful mix.

Ingredients

  • 6 zucchini

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 3 tablespoons margarine

  • 1 clove garlic, minced (Optional)

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Cut zucchini into thin, noodle-like strips (a mandoline works well for this). Toss with the 2 teaspoons salt, and place in a colander to drain for 30 minutes.

  2. Bring a pot of water to boil. Add zucchini; cook for one minute. Drain; rinse immediately with cold water to stop cooking.

  3. Heat margarine 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.
