Simple and healthy, these zucchini noodles are paired with roasted tomatoes and a light white wine sauce. Cooked in one skillet to cut back on the clean-up.
Ingredients
  • 3 large zucchini
  • ¾ C cherry tomatoes, halved
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp diced onion
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • ½ tbsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp of dried oregano (or fresh, if you have it)
  • 2 tbsp white white, such as chardonnay
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. Rinse and peel the zucchini. Spiralize the zucchini to create noodles. Use a spiralizer or a julienne slicer to create the noodles. If using a spiralizer, break apart the noodles into smaller strands, once spiralized.
  2. Turn your broiler on. Place the tomatoes in an oven-safe bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and then drizzle with olive oil. Roast under the broiler for 5 minutes or until the tomatoes are slightly charred. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a 10 inch skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, minced garlic, crushed red pepper and oregano. Saute until the onion is tender. Add the white wine. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until slightly reduced and thickened.
  4. Add the zucchini noodles to the skillet. Toss with tongs to coat with the sauce mixture. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until tender.
  5. Mix in the parmesan cheese and top with the roasted tomatoes.
