This is a super light, quick and easy version of a classic dish. Zucchini spaghetti can be used with a variety of sauces, but this is one of my favorite pairings.

Zucchini Spaghetti with Red Pepper Marinara

For Spaghetti

  • 2 medium zucchini

For Marinara:

  • 1 red pepper cut and deseeded
  • 1cup cherry, roma or grape tomatoes or 2 medium tomatoes
  • ½ cup sundried tomatoes (soaked in water to re-hydrate) approx 8
  • 1/2 cup fresh Basil- 2 big handfuls
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • a healthy sprinkle of dried thyme
  • a healthy sprinkle of dried oregano
  • salt to taste
  1. Using a vegetable peeler or spiralizer, thinly slice the zucchini to make the “spaghetti.” A spiralizer will give a more authentic spaghetti shape, while the vegetable peeler will produce more “fettuccini” like noodles.
  2. Combine all marinara ingredients in a high-speed blender. Adjust seasoning to taste.
  3. Top zucchini with marinara, toss and enjoy.
