Garlic Goat Cheese Zucchini Noodles

Garlic Goat Cheese Zucchini Noodles

I have fallen in love with zucchini noodles this summer. I could probably eat them almost every day, but David won’t let me. I can’t help the fact that he created a monster by buying me a Veggetti spiralizer. These Garlic Goat Cheese Zucchini Noodles are my favorite so far!

I told you yesterday I came up with another zucchini noodle recipe to go along with the Sriracha Orange Marmalade Pork Tenderloin we grilled the other day. As promised, here’s the recipe:

Heat butter and olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chili flakes and garlic. Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Just as the zucchini noodles begin to soften, but before they start shedding water, add the goat cheese.

Cook just until the sauce is heated.

This is a quick process. Remember the more you cook the noodles the more water is extracted, making the sauce runny.

Serve immediately.

I have truly fallen in love with the idea of spiralizing fruits and vegetables. The Veggetti is a great starter option, but I think it is time I get a more professional spiralizer…
