  • 4 medium to large zucchini
  • 1-2 tsp salt
  • Your favorite pasta sauce recipe
  • Optional garnishes of grated parmesan or shredded parmesan fresh basil


  • Gently wash and dry your zucchini.
  • Cut off each end of the zucchini (or per your instructions for your spiralizer). I used my spiralizer attachment for my food processor. Spiralize the zucchini.
  • Spread the spirals on a sheet pan and sprinkle with salt. The salt aids in the moisture removal from the zucchini so you don’t have soggy noodles. Let the noodles sit for 10-15 minutes. Then gently blot with a paper towel to remove the moisture and maintain the noodle shape.
  • You can eat the zoodles raw with warm pasta sauce if desired.
  • You can also saute the noodles in a skillet for 2-3 minutes, don’t overcook or they will get soggy. You can use 1 Tablespoon of oil in the pan if you want but they have so much moisture in them they really don’t need it.
  • Season the noodles with salt and pepper as desired.
  • Top with pasta sauce, shredded parmesan, and fresh basil.
