Zucchini noodles are hot right now. I do not have a spiral cutter but I do have a mandolin. You can use a knife or a vegetable peeler or even cut across into rounds. This is a creamy cheesy 10! Keep the flavors simple and clean to showcase the zucchini. It's just delicious, fresh and healthy!
  • ½ cup part skim milk ricotta
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan, Romano, or Locatelli cheese
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 medium zucchini, cut into strips, noodles, zoodles, rounds, or strips
  • Crushed red pepper
  1. In a bowl or food processor blend ricotta, Parmesan, ¼ teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet or wok, saute the garlic in the olive oil until lightly golden. Add zucchini noodles and toss over medium high heat until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, along with a pinch of crushed red pepper. Remove pan from heat.
  3. Add the cheese mixture to the pan and carefully fold in as it softens and melts. Add additional salt and pepper to taste if needed.

        You could use a simple measure for serving size, such as 1 cup, so folks can easily adjust to their personal needs. Or perhaps give a total quantity for how much the recipe makes.

    Hi Susan! Just curious, there is garlic in the ingredients but not in the recipe. Is it used to sauté the zucchini? Thank you!

      Kirsten, the garlic is blended with the cheese in the recipe. “In a bowl or food processor blend ricotta, Parmesan, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper to taste. Set aside.”

    This was soooo easy and delish! I added some Italian herbs and a little red pepper flakes to the cheese sauce. Excellent!
