Zucchini Ribbons With Basil Butter

Zucchini Ribbons With Basil Butter created by Jonathan Melendez

Found this in a magazine! Made it with the garlic excellent! Also instead of boiling the ribbons, I fried them in butter until tender. Wow! That was excellent also! Very easy either way.

    I don't have the patience to create zoodles, so instead I just shred the zucchini into spaghetti-like strands (using a food processor). Rather than boiling, I sauteed with garlic and butter, as others have suggested. And added tomatoes after everything else had been cooked and combined. Wanting a main dish instead of a side, I add some cooked sausage or chicken. Tastes great!

    I made this for my son who is dairy free so I omitted the cheese & used fake butter. He said it tasted like a warm salad & was a bit watery. He suggested sauteeing the zuchini in olive oil & adding garlic. I will definately make this again with my bounty of zuchini from my garden.

    Is it possible to freeze the zuchhini noodles and make them later in place of pasta? I'd like to have on hand for when I need a pasta substitute.

    Great recipe, I substituted potato for the zucchini and hot oil for the water. Added a few minutes to the cooking time, drained and seasoned with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Goes great with tequila!
