Instructions

  • In a large, heavy-weight skillet, melt one tablespoon of butter with the olive oil, and then add the garlic. Sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Garnish with grated Parmesan.

Notes

* I’ve noticed that some people enjoy the crunchy (almost raw) zucchini noodles while others prefer them to soften and cook through a bit. That is why I recommend experimenting with the cooking time for your zoodles, so you can figure out how you enjoy them the most. Please remember that if you cook your zoodles for more than 2 minutes, they will release some liquid.
