Italian Zoodles

Baked Italian Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles)

A healthy take on an Italian classic, this "zoodle" recipe replaces carb-heavy pasta with zucchini "noodles" and then is baked to perfection with marinara and parmesan.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 zucchini spiralized or julienned
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/2 c. marinara sauce
  • 1/4 c. parmesan
  • 1/2 c. mozzarella
  • 1 Tbsp. basil chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In an oven-proof skillet, heat olive oil over low heat. Add garlic and julienned zucchini; cook for about 2-3 minutes on medium heat, or until zucchini is tender.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add marinara and half of the parmesan; stir well.
  5. Top with bread crumbs, mozzarella, and remaining parmesan.
  6. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, or until top begins to brown and cheese is melted.
  7. Finish with chopped basil and extra parmesan if desired.
