  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir green bell pepper, onion, seasoned salt, and sea salt for 3 minutes. Add chicken sausage and cook until sausage is lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add spinach, basil, garlic paste, and seasoned salt to taste; cook until spinach is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Place zoodles on a serving plate and toss with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and sea salt. Add sausage mixture and tomatoes and top with Parmesan cheese; season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Notes:

Cut zucchini into noodle shapes by using a mandolin or spiralizing device.

Replace 1 teaspoon garlic paste with 3 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped, if desired.

This was a great change from my usual dinners and the whole house loved it! I made the following minor changes. 1) I prep my zucchini noodles by drying them on paper towels for a bit with a light sprinkle of salt to help draw out moisture. 2) I did not boil the noodles because that would add more moisture. I just added them to the dish when I put in the spinach and let them cook a bit that way. They don't need long. 3) I used pork hot links instead of chicken sausage for some kick. It came out great and I'm having the left overs today for lunch without cheese or tomatoes and it's still good. Read More

Very tasty but the sodium per serving is through the roof due to the high sodium content in the chicken sausages. Go for it if your blood pressure needs a boost! Read More
