Quick Spiralized Zucchini (Zoodles) and Grape Tomatoes

I think it was on an episode of MasterChef Junior that I heard the quote “what grows together, goes together” which makes so much sense. Zucchini, tomatoes and basil are just made for each other, you can serve as a side dish, as suggested, or even as a main dish topped with some grilled shrimp or chicken.

Since grape tomatoes and zucchini are in season, I thought it would be a good time to revive this recipe from the archives.I’ve been using the thicker blade on my Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer to make my zoodles (zucchini noodles). I like the larger noodle because it has more of bite and I’m careful not to overcook them so they don’t get soggy. Under two minutes is all they need, then I quickly remove them from the hot skillet or they will keep cooking.

    I love this recipe but today I read the comments and I have a question. I use zoodles that I buy presliced. In one reply you say that you use cooked zoodles. Are you saying that you blanch them first before they go in to pan? Thank you

  2. Loved this recipe!  I added 1/2 red pepper to garlic to sauté them together.  I also added some dry red wine with the tomatoes and let it reduce before I added the zucchini spirals.  It was so delicious!!!  Grilled chicken breast added to it makes a complete meal!  Yummy!!!!

  3. This tastes great. I add more chili flakes because I like it spicy. Next time I make this I will add tuna and see how that goes.
