My friend Helen and I shared this dish at Matteo's in Boca Raton along with our Veal Sorrentino. The zucchini linguini stole the show. I immediately located a metal peeler to create the shreds and voila - that's the dish. It is perfect tossed with olive oil, garlic, and Parmesan or red sauce. Even faster version is to pan saute your zucchini shreds and heat them in half a jar of Mario Batali or Gia Russo sauce. It is delicious!
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Freshly grated Parmesan
  • pasta sauce - optional
  1. Peel long strips of zucchini using a vegetable peeler or mandolin.
  2. Sauté the garlic in the olive oil in a large skillet, add the zucchini and gently toss to coat. Season with salt and black pepper. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, until wilted and tender. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, adjust seasonings and toss to coat with the cheese.
  3. The zucchini strips can also be simmered in your favorite marinara sauce recipe. Homemade Pasta Sauce
