Zucchini Pasta with Tomato Sauce
A healthy alternative
Zucchini noodles are a healthy and gluten-free alternative to regular pasta. They are full of flavour, tender and simple to make. The zucchini is cut into the shape of noodles with the help of a vegetable peeler. Toss them with a simple and honest homemade tomato sauce for a delicious vegetarian dish the whole family will love.
3 zucchinis (green)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup water
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Cut slices lengthwise from zucchini using a vegetable peeler, stopping when the seeds are reached. Turn zucchini over and continue 'peeling' until all the zucchini is in long strips; discard seeds. Slice the zucchini into thinner strips resembling spaghetti.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini in the hot oil for 1 minute. Add water and cook until zucchini is softened, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
