Zucchini Squash Noodles

  • Author: Carole



  • 4 small zucchini or yellow squash *Larger squash with seeds, will cause you headaches when trying to slice your noodles!
  • Salt


  1. Using a juilenne peeler, run the length of your squash to make your noodles.  Once all your noodles are sliced, sprinkle them with salt and toss so the salt is well distributed.  Let sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat.  Once hot, add a dab of oil.  Squeeze the excess water from the salted zucchini noodles and saute for 1-2 minutes until they are just barely softening.  I like to cook them in individual batches for each person so they don’t get too wet and mushy from cooking a big batch all together.
  3. Plate your noodles and top with hot marinara sauce!
