John and I really love zucchini noodles.  Easy to cook and delicious.  Enjoy!



Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced (or to taste)
  • ¾ cup parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt or sea salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • ¼ tsp. red chili flakes


  1. Cut zucchini into spirals or noodle strands using a vegetable spiralizer or julienne peeler. Set aside noodles.
  2. Heat a large pan on medium-high heat. Melt butter, then add garlic. Cook garlic until fragrant and translucent. Don’t let the garlic burn.
  3. Add zucchini noodles and cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat, add parmesan cheese and season generously with salt and pepper to taste. Add chili flakes and serve warm.


  • Zucchini noodles cook fast, so taste a strand as you cook and decide how firm or “al-dente” you want your zucchini. Don’t over cook the noodles or they will become mush.
