Guilt-Free Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Noodles Pasta

Loading...

We’re in love with this easy zucchini pasta recipe. There’s fresh zucchini, tomatoes, basil, parmesan, and lots of garlic. Plus, it only takes 20 minutes to make. Make this with 100% zucchini noodles or swap half of the zucchini for regular spaghetti for a heartier meal.

Ingredients:


  • 4 medium zucchini (about 2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 to 4 cloves)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, depending on how spicy you like the pasta
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped, see note (about 12 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
  • 1 cup basil leaves, torn into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cold water
  • Salt, to taste

Instructions:


  1. Trim and spiralize the zucchini (see notes below for how to do this without a spiralizer). Cut extra long noodles so that they are about the length of spaghetti.
  2. Add olive oil, garlic, and the red pepper flakes to a large, deep skillet. Turn to medium heat. When the oil begins to bubble around the garlic, add the zucchini noodles. Toss the noodles with pasta tongs and cook until al dente — they should be wilted, but still have a crunch; 5 to 7 minutes. Do not let the noodles cook any longer or else they will become mushy. As they cook, keep tossing so that all the zucchini noodles have a chance to hit the bottom of the skillet.
