Zucchini Spaghetti

This recipe is quick and easy to prepare, it's loved by everyone I've yet to feed it to. I first saw this recipe on tv in 1993, it was a quick filler for the real show, like a commercial. I however removed several items and added others, the basic preparation and olive oil are all that really remains of the first recipe.

    To me there seemed to be too many noodles, I had to add pasta sauce then it was much better.

    I used rotini pasta and omited the dried basil (the fresh basil is rather strong). I thought that it was a bit bland at first, but much better with pecarino romano cheese on top. It was fast to cook and it was colorful.

    A very nice change from the usual tomato based spaghetti sauce.
