Ingredients
  • 2 large zucchini
Instructions
  1. For broad pappardelle shaped pasta use a potato peeler and peel long strips of zucchini moving the peeler length wise down the zucchini. Rotate the zucchini as you go to keep the noodles as uniform as possible.
  2. For more spaghetti style noodles invest in a sprializer appliance. They are inexpensive and can easily be found online or most kitchen supply stores. Push your zucchini through the chosen grate setting.
  3. Prepare 2 different ways:
  4. Raw: Sprinkle and toss noodles with a teaspoon of salt. Place inside a colander and place over a bowl or the sink. Allow the noodles to weep and drain for about 30 minutes. Enjoy raw.
  5. Cooked: Heat 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil or ghee over medium heat. Add noodles and toss with a teaspoon of salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, turning and tossing with a pair of tongs the whole time.
