While walking the aisles at the supermarket, you may have seen (and wondered what to do with) veggie “noodles.” To make this simple and fresh dish, you can use precut zucchini noodles — also known as zoodles. Or, if you have a spiralizer (and there are a number of relatively inexpensive and easy-to-use models now), you can buy whole zucchini and make zoodles at home.
Whether you spiralize your own zoodles or purchase them from the store, this recipe is perfect for a hot summer night when you want a light meal. The whole thing comes together in under 15 minutes. And it is a flexible recipe. You can add different spices to the sauce or additional vegetables, such as fresh corn, to the zoodles. You can also crumble feta over the finished dish, or add leftover grilled (cooled) chicken or tofu for a heartier meal.
