Prep: 8 mins
Cook: 12 mins
Total: 20 mins
Makes 4 Servings

YOU WILL NEED

  • 4 medium zucchini (about 2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 to 4 cloves)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, depending on how spicy you like the pasta
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped, see note (about 12 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
  • 1 cup basil leaves, torn into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cold water
  • Salt, to taste

DIRECTIONS

PREPARE NOODLES

  • Trim and spiralize the zucchini (see notes below for how to do this without a spiralizer). Cut extra long noodles so that they are about the length of spaghetti.
  • Add olive oil, garlic, and the red pepper flakes to a large, deep skillet. Turn to medium heat. When the oil begins to bubble around the garlic, add the zucchini noodles. Toss the noodles with pasta tongs and cook until al dente — they should be wilted, but still have a crunch; 5 to 7 minutes. Do not let the noodles cook any longer or else they will become mushy. As they cook, keep tossing so that all the zucchini noodles have a chance to hit the bottom of the skillet.
  • Stir in the tomatoes, basil, and parmesan cheese. Cook for one minute.
  • Use pasta tongs to transfer the noodles, tomatoes, and basil to a serving dish. Leave the liquid in the skillet.

TO FINISH

  • Bring the liquid to a simmer. Combine cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl then whisk into the simmering liquid. Cook, while whisking, until the liquid thickens to a sauce; about 1 minute.
  • Taste the sauce and season with salt.
  • Pour the sauce over the zucchini, tomatoes, and basil. Finish with more parmesan cheese on top and serve immediately.

How to make zucchini noodles without a spiralizer: The spiralizer is not the only way to make noodles. You can use a julienne vegetable peeler or a mandoline. You can also use a standard vegetable peeler to make wide noodles or ribbons.
