How to make zucchini spaghetti

  1. Take the courgettes and wash them thoroughly under running water, then remove the ends and dry them.
  2. At this point you can decide whether to keep the skin or remove it : in the first case you will create a very captivating play of different shades and colors, as well as different textures in the mouth. If, on the other hand, you remove the skin, you will have softer zucchini.
  3. Now you have to make the vegetable spaghetti: if you have the appropriate rotary machine, all you have to do is follow the instructions, but if you don't have it, you can use a grater with large holes and pass the zucchini vertically. Alternatively, slice the zucchini along the long side with a knife or mandolin, then cut many strips.
  4. Now prepare the sauce, start cooking and complete the dish. Put a drizzle of oil and a clove of garlic in a very large pan to heat up, add the washed and cut cherry tomatoes and let them cook over high heat for a few minutes.
  5. Remove the garlic and add the zucchini spaghetti, taking care to spread them as wide as possible so that they are crunchy.
  6. Leave to cook for 5-10 minutes being careful not to burn the dish (add a drop of water if necessary) and not to flake the pasta. Finally, season with salt and pepper and serve.

How to season raw zucchini spaghetti

If you opt to leave the zucchini spaghetti raw, you can season the zucchini with salt, pepper and a good drizzle of oil, perhaps even adding a spoonful of pesto , to make the dish creamier .

Another idea could be to use cheese , perhaps diced feta: this dish, in fact, lends itself very well to being dressed like a salad, so using fresh ingredients can be a winning choice. Feta, cherry tomatoes and basil are three simple elements to make a fabulous dish !
