  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 (10 ounce) basket cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 5 medium zucchini, run through a spiralizer

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (8 ounce) container mini mozzarella balls, halved

  • ¼ cup fresh basil, cut into thin strips

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add cherry tomatoes and quickly stir until tomatoes just begin to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add zucchini noodles, salt, and pepper. Keep cooking, stirring frequently, until zoodles are tender yet firm to the bite, 2 to 3 minutes.

  2. Remove from heat and stir in mozzarella and basil. Toss to coat. Divide zoodles between 4 bowls and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes:

Zoodles do not reheat well and become watery the longer they sit. Eat immediately.
