Food I Love! Zucchini Pasta!

This recipe is ridiculously easy and so so good!! Great as a side dish or served alone. I like to make grilled chicken with it, rubbed with a little olive oil and then sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic powder and italian seasoning.

This recipe is from Light n Tasty Magazine, (now Healthy Cooking Magazine) by Taste of Home.








Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked linguine
  • 4 cups coarsely shredded zucchini (about 3 medium)
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • Cook linguine according to package directions. In a sieve or colander, drain the zucchini, squeezing to remove excess liquid. Pat dry.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, saute zucchini in oil for 2 minutes. Add garlic; saute 1-2 minutes longer or until zucchini is tender. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the yogurt, cheese, salt and pepper. Drain linguine; add to zucchini mixture and toss to coat. Yield: 6 servings.
