  • 2 zucchini, cut into noodle-shape strands

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper

  • cup chopped white onion

  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt (such as Spike® seasoning)

  • 1 pinch sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 sweet pepper chicken sausages, sliced

  • 1 cup lightly torn fresh spinach

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste

  • 1 large tomato, diced

  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook zucchini noodles (zoodles) in the boiling water until tender yet firm to the bite, about 3 minutes; drain.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
