Zucchini Spaghetti

I’ve been fascinated by the new trend of making thin spaghetti like strips of vegetables.  I went and bought a hand held device and I love it!!  This one uses a Spanish cheese with it.

SpanishPork Chops (2)

What you need:

  • 3 medium zucchini squash
  • 1 teaspoon flaked sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of butter
  • 2-3 Tablespoons grated manchego cheese

How to Do it:

Using a tool to create strips of vegetables, cut all three squash.

The tool I used was an inexpensive hand-held manual tool.  It’s small, but did the trick!  There are a lot of options available.

Place the salt in a large bowl and add ice cold water to the bowl.  Add the squash to the bowl for about 10 minutes or until ready to use.

Place the olive oil in a hot skillet.  Sauté on medium-low, turning with tongs frequently, until squash starts to soften, then add the butter and toss until it is fully melted.

Serve with grated cheese over the top.

Goes great with Spanish pork chops and Spanish style corn on the cob!
