My non-eating zucchini husband loves this dish. It's very low carb and low in calories. You can feel good eating this. You can serve as a main dish with a side salad.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini until tender yet still with a little crunch, about 7 minutes. Season "noodles" with salt and pepper. Move "noodles" to a plate.

  • Melt butter in the same skillet over medium heat; add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Slowly add flour and whisk constantly until mixture is light brown, about 1 minute. Slowly pour in the milk while constantly whisking until a smooth sauce forms, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Stir cream cheese into sauce until melted; add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and whisk until blended. Pour sauce of "noodles" and top with 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese.
