I love combining spiralized zucchini with pasta, it’s a great way to lighten a pasta dish, and you’re still getting real pasta which I often crave when I am eating zoodles alone.

This recipe is a dish I often whip up in the summer and it’s great because it takes less than 20 minutes to make. For those on gluten-free diets, use brown rice pasta instead. I love this simple weeknight meatless dish, if you wish to add protein, this would be great with shrimp or chicken!

  1. This was absolutely fantastic 👏. Gina you are amazing!!! I have made many of your recipes and they have ALL been fantastic and delicious. Your recipes are not complicated and use readily accessible ingredients.

  2. I love this dish, but use asparagus instead of zucchini to crisp it up. Occasionally I’ll use feta instead of the parm.

  3. Im not sure how i missed this dish before but its great! Its tastes like a lighter more flavorful pasta dish! Even
    my  kids loved it! Cant wait to make it again. Thank you  

  4. My family loved this dish! It was so easy and delicious. I need to double the recipe because we didn’t have seconds :)! Thanks for another great recipe!

  5. Gina – loved this dish with all the textures.  Love all your recipes.  What spiralizer do you have to get your noodles so thin???

  6. This is one of my favorite recipes! For my ww friends on purple if you use jovial brown rice pasta it’s a 0 point food. I ended up with a total of 2 points per serving after putting all of the ingredients into the app!!! (Parmesan adds more points)

  7. very good and so easy. next time, i will start the tomatoes with thegarlic &onion before adding the zucchini so it gives the tomatoes time to break down

  8. We used whole wheat pasta to further reduce the (WW purple) points. This was OK the first day, but when it had time to rest overnight in the fridge, it was even better. My daughter didn’t like the two textures — spiralized zucchini and pasta — but by the second day, you couldn’t tell the difference. Sauce flavors also had some time to blend. We’ll try it again!

  9. I really enjoyed this! I will definitely make it again. It was lite yet filling. I did add some chicken to my dish and folded it into the veggies once cooked to absorb some of the liquid. It would be great either way. 

  10. Awesome recipe! Tasted so good, plus I got my kids to eat veggies!

  11. I found this one pretty bland…

  12. Oh yummy & easy! I wanted to use up a little bit of wine so added that. Used big cherry tomatoes from the garden.  Def a keeper!

  13. Gina, is the 8 oz of pasta cooked pasta or uncooked pasta??

  14. Made this tonight and it was so delicious and light. I used fresh basil in place of parsley and added some marinated chicken pieces. Will definitely make this again.

  15. This was seriously so good.  Such simple ingredients and full of flavor.  My family loves it!  Make sure you add fresh Parmesan cheese to your serving.  It takes it to the next level!
