5-ingredient no-cook zoodle marinara

Based on 5 ratings

"Zucchini contain a lot of water, which means they easily become mushy as soon as they hit the heat. In this 5-ingredient recipe, which can be completely vegan if you leave out the Parmesan, they stay nice and "al dente" and are eaten raw, which is to say, cold. These zucchini spaghetti, also called "zoodles," are great if you're looking for a quick, easy lunch or dinner. What's special about this recipe? The stove stays off, for sauce and the "noodles"."

    Use a spiralizer to shave zoodles from the zucchini. If you don't have one, you can use a vegetable peeler to shave thin strips of zucchini, which you can slice into thinner strips, if desired. Divide the zoodles between the serving plates. Peel garlic and shallot.
