Meals On Monday Did Someone Say Zucchini

Zucchini, did someone say zucchini? Yes. We have plenty. Our garden is producing quicker than I can cook it. We have baskets full, bowls full and a fridge full. I heard someone say once .”when zucchini season arrives don’t leave your car unlocked” Because you will surely  find it filled with zucchini . We have been giving it away as well. Now, if only I could share them with you. Instead I will share a very simple and often overlooked recipe for zucchini noodles.

What You Need

3 zucchini, cleaned and ends trimmed off

1 Lb linguine

Large pasta pot


1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 Cup Parmesan cheese, grated ( optional)

Before You Start: Using a julienne peeler or a mandolin, cut the skin and first layer of zucchini from each squash into long ribbons, or “noodles” (about 3 cups.) If you don’t have a julienne peeler or mandolin use a knife to slice the skin and first layer of a squash off each side of the zucchini (about 1/8-inch-thick strips) then julienne each strip into 1/8-inch-wide noodles Reserve remaining squash for another recipe- see hash browns below.

Lets Make It! Cook linguine according to the package directions. When you have 2 minutes of cooking time left add squash noodles to the pot and stir. When linguine is cooked the squash will be tender. Then drain well in a colander and place it all together in a serving dish, top with olive oil and toss. Serve with your favorite topping, spinach and cheese filled ravioli is great, a marinara sauce, Alfredo sauce, or just grated Parmesan cheese.

Serves 2-4


Hash browns with zucchini? Sure why not, chop the squash up into bite size pieces and add to your favorite hash brown recipe.

    I like the sound of the zucchini noodles! I’m going to grab the recipe. Thanks, Katherine.

    Hi, Katie! Early in the season our garden yielded a ton of zucchini. The Florida sun is relentless in May and June and it became too hot to grow most crops. Florida actually cools down a little in summer when clouds and rain are common. Conditions are already getting too dry again even though we received 10 inches of rain from the recent tropical storm. Have a delightful week, dear Katie!

    Always looking for new ways to use zucchini!

    I have never eaten zucchini but the recipes you have shared here sound and look great. I am sorry I am not nearby to get some of your zucchini Katie. Thanks a lot for sharing this on Creative Monday and have a wonderful week.

  8. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell

    I never would have thought of that. It sounds delish!

  9. Missy

    I made some pickled veggies, and added zucchini to it. I wish I had a friend giving away a lot of zucchini! LOL

  10. Alex J. Cavanaugh

    Zucchini used to be one of those vegetables I just didn’t like. But in stir fry, it’s not bad.

  11. The Coal Miner and Me

    I love zucchini in every way, shape, or form. Chocolate zucchini bread is to die for. Your recipes look very good. I’m going to make the zucchini noodles for sure.

  12. annie

    Love your Zucchini recipesl. Very summery.
    I like cut the big ones in half, scoop them out, mix that with ground beef, cooked rice and tomatoes, place back in the shell and bake! delicious.

  13. Deborah

    My plant has flowered, flowered and flowered but I have gotten nothing from it.
    Have to go to the Farmer’s Market for my zucchini. I sure do love it. I wish you could share some with me :)

  14. Stacie

    I’m learning to like Zucchini a little bit more than I did when I was younger. I’d love to try to make Chocolate Zucchini bread.

  15. small Kucing

    Its a good idea. I never tjought of that

  16. claudia lamascolo

    WOW This sounds like a fantastic idea!

  17. shirley@housepitalitydesigns

    Great recipe Katherine!!…We have been eating lots of veggies and skipping the pasta and potatoes!!…

  18. Little Susie Home Maker

    I love to oven roast them with peppers, eggplants., and garlic, or any other yummy veggy and drizzled with olive oil. So good! Thanks for sharing your recipes.

    This one sounds good too. I happen to have an extra zucchini leftover from camping. I might have to cook this up and do this one. either this or it’s getting chopped up in spaghetti sauce.

    Hi Katherine-I love this idea. I found you through your comment on my mom’s site. I LOVE her spaghetti sauce and we often serve it over grated zucchini to reduce carbs and calories, but I like the idea of mixing a little pasta in for the real deal feel. I am def. going to try out the hash browns.
