  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir canned crushed tomatoes, basil, grilled tomatoes, bell peppers, and onion into skillet; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Puree vegetable mixture with a stick blender; season with salt and pepper and keep at a simmer.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil; drop in summer squash and zucchini spirals and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain water from pot; lay spirals on paper towels to drain completely.

  • Place squash spirals on individual plates; top with a portion of cooked chicken, a generous amount of red pepper sauce, and Parmesan cheese.

This was so much better than I expected it to be! I don't usually make recipes that only have one review but I was on a strict dietary plan and this fit the bill so I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did! My sister and her roommate asked for the recipe and ended up making a double batch of the sauce the very next day so they could freeze some to use for meal prep. The only thing I did differently was roast the toin the oven because I didn't have access to a grill that day. Thank you Read More

Fresh roasted vegetables are hard to beat. Putting them on top of zucchini spaghetti well that is just pure genius. No need to tweak here. A no brainer leads to a five-star meal. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
