Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Noodles

Summer is coming! With Summer comes an abundance of delicious yummy veggies! One of my favorite summer veggies is zucchini! If you haven't tried zucchini noodles, then you are missing out! It is a great alternative to pasta without all the carbs and calories. Plus they are super duper easy to make!

My favorite way to spiralize is with my Paderno Spiralizer. I love this kitchen gadget and have had it for over 5 years! It is simply amazing! It makes spiralizing so quick and easy and clean up is a breeze. You can find them on Amazon.

Once you start spiralizing, zoodle dishes will be a cinch to throw together! This particular recipe is exceptionally easy to prepare, but it is also one of my favorites. A few added ingredients makes this dish light, refreshing and perfect for Summer!

Melt butter in a large pan and add fresh minced garlic. Then add zucchini noodles and tomatoes and cook for a few minutes. Add parmesan cheese, basil and seasonings if desired. Serve it with your favorite Leaner or Leanest Lean such as chicken breasts or shrimp. A super fast delicious Lean and Green meal! Enjoy!
