Zucchini Noodles and Butternut Squash in a Garlic-Lemon Sauce

I made this dish as one of the recipes for a charity event to benefit Place of Hope. We received amazing vegetables as donations and I thought this dish would be perfect.  I wish we grabbed a photo of my friend Suhiel spiralizing an entire box of zucchini!  

You can add poultry or seafood to make this dish hearty or enjoy as is for a perfect side dish or vegetarian option.  

Enjoy!

Zucchini Pad Thai

Zucchini Pad Thai

When home alone I still make dinner but just for 1.. Normally I try out new recipes or ingredients that I just love that hubby may not be very interested in trying. Tonight when I returned home from a weekend with my kids in Maine there was a limited amount of choices but I found a zucchini, carrots and everything else I need for a Pad Thai but I decided to use Zucchini for this delicious Paleo Recipe.

I did find 2 chicken cutlets and sauteed them first in a little olive oil and butter after seasoning them with salt and pepper for 3 minutes on each side. Set them aside and used the same pan for my Zucchini Pad Thai.

This was very tasty and I may even make it for hubby!

After you make my Zucchini Pasta Puttanesca it will become a regular – I promise!

I made this with Easy Grilled Tuna and it was the perfect combination. I did take out some of the puttanesca mixture before adding the zucchini and topped the tuna.

I have a device that turns zucchini into noodles but you can also use a vegetable peeler or mandolin.

Zucchini Ribbon and Spinach Sauté

Serving this dish with fresh grilled fish is a perfect combination.  Zucchini  (courgette) can be grilled, fried, sauteed, or eating raw in a salad.  I grew up eating zucchini and eggs for breakfast and now, I just love making pasta with this versatile vegetable!

**Cindy's Tip!--A mandolin works great for creating ribbons but a vegetable peeler is also a wonderful tool in the kitchen.  You may want to discard the first few as it will be the green only from the zucchini's skin **

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: .

Zucchini Scrambled Eggs

Zucchinis are a very versatile, low caloric and delicious vegetable. I picked about 4 zucchini from my garden and sautéed them up with my salmon dinner. I quickly packed up the unused zucchini for my breakfast. I remember making zucchini scrambled egg sandwiches with fresh Italian bread with my grandmother and we enjoyed every bite together. This morning I made a big pot so I can snack on throughout the day. This recipe is using left over zucchini. If you want to sauté up the zucchini in a little olive oil, salt and pepper for about 8 minutes they will be ready for your breakfast.

Zucchini Spaghetti with Lentil Marinara

I just love lentils and marinara so it was a quick decision to marry the two of them in this zucchini dish!  I love to drizzle my dish with a little extra virgin olive oil then sprinkle some freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Cindy's Note:  Before using the lentils pour into a colander and rinse then go through them with your hands to pick out any bad lentils.

Zucchini with olives and sun-dried tomatoes

My grandfather had a large garden every year and there was always an abundance of zucchini.  We would enjoy them for every meal of the day.  I just love them anyway, but sometimes I just want it in a simple salad.  This is one of my favorite summer salads when using zucchini.
