  1. Heat a non-stick skillet or wok over medium. Toast the pine nuts stirring constantly to keep from burning, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Return the skillet to medium heat; add butter and crushed red pepper; stir until butter melts. Stir in spiralized zucchini. Saute, flipping lightly throughout the cooking process. When the zoodles are al dente (about 5 minutes), transfer them to a serving dish or plate. Top with shaved cheese and reserved pine nuts.

Tasty and very easy. I had to sub walnuts for pine nuts because that's all I had. The crunch of the nuts is essential to the success of this dish. I will definitely make this again.

Some times, less is more and this is one of those recipes. Easy and fast to prepare, and the butter brings out the fresh flavors. I love the zucchini just barely cooked. Adjust the pepper fl...

Super easy and quick. My family loves things hot and a 1/4tsp of pepper flakes was MORE then enough. I added cherry tomatoes to skillet just before zucchini zoodles. Very delicious!

Yumm-eee! I didn't have pine nuts available or the cheese specified (used some grated parmesan). I added a little crushed garlic (everything is better with that as far as I'm concerned), salt an...

no pine nuts in the pantry, minus the cheese, so I fried some spiral onions (crispy) which I had long enough in the refrigerator. Still delicious.

I liked this recipe. I am not a fan of spicy so left out the red pepper this time. Next time I will use a pinch of cayenne. I did use salt, black pepper and garlic. Although I had no pine nu...

I made this per the directions, but added chopped red bell pepper and garlic. Everything's better with garlic! There was a bit too much red pepper flakes IMO, so next time I'd cut that in half....

great
