‘Noodles’ with Pomodoro Sauce

These long, soft, delicate zucchini noodles will curb any pasta craving – especially when paired with your choice of sauce.

This sauce is a light tomato and basil pomodoro, but the options are endless.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Makes: 4 cups

Serving Size: 2 cups

Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchini or summer squashes, ends trimmed
  • 1 ½ cups diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • ¼ tsp sea saIt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp ghee

Method

  1. Lay a box grater flat on your workstation so the largest holes face up. Push zucchini longwise across the top of the grater, rotate zucchini, and push across the grater again. Repeat until all zucchini is shredded into noodles. (Or use a vegetable spiralizer or mandolin slicer.)
  2. In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, basil, garlic, sea salt, and black pepper.
  3. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat ghee. Add 4 cups zucchini noodles, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 ½ minutes or until just softened.
  4. Add 2 cups sauce to noodles, and cook, stirring to warm sauce and completely coat noodles, for 1 ½ minutes.
