Garlic Lemon Zoodle Pasta
A spiralizer is my new favorite kitchen tool that transforms vegetables, like zucchini, into noodles. This is a fun easy way to increase vegetable consumption and decrease carbohydrate intake from traditional pasta dishes. Whether you are working on weight loss, going gluten free, or just appreciate clean healthy meals this rather inexpensive tool would be a great addition to your kitchen.
1 tbs olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
4 basil leaves, torn into small pieces
salt and pepper to taste
Use a spiralizer to form noodles out of the zucchini.
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add zucchini noodles to the pan and stir until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Add tomatoes, basil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Cook about 30 seconds longer and serve hot.
