Preparation time:20 minutes
1/2 teaspoon pesto
1/3 cup marinara sauce(or any other pasta sauce of your choice)
1 cup mushrooms chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon grated parmesan(optional)
Salt to taste
Fresh ground black pepper a few dashes
1/4 cup diced onions
2 garlic cloves diced
Pinch red chili flakes
1.Julienne cut the zucchini.I have a julienne peeler,you can also slice them real thin and cut with knife,or you can cut them in the shape of flat rice noodles.
2.Heat olive oil in a pan and add garlic and onion and saute for 2 minutes.
3.Now add the mushrooms(or any other vegetable of your choice) and saute for 2-3 minutes.
4.Now add the marinara sauce and the pesto and salt and black pepper and red chili flakes and mix and let cook for 2 minutes.
5.Add the zucchini pasta and saute for 1 minute and turn off the stove.I like the zucchini to have a crunch to it,it you do not like partially cooked or uncooked vegetables cook the zucchini a bit longer(3-4 minutes).
Sprinkle a bit of grated Parmesan on top and serve.
You can use any vegetables of your choice instead of the mushrooms.
