  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.

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!

This was wonderful! And easy! I added a little olive oil with my butter. I fried some fresh, minced garlic first for about a minute- just til it started to brown, then added the zoodles. I took ...
