If you’re in need of some light, flavorful food that will both fuel your body and warm your soul during the Summer months, look no further than this delicious Zucchini Pappardelle recipe!
I LOVE zucchini squash noodles and this zucchini pappardelle was a fun way to prepare them. The way they soak up the flavors of the lemon, chili and garlic, and the way that they can be twisted with a fork into mouthfuls makes them a great substitute for pasta dishes.
This this is also super easy to make, and pairing it with a side of baked Salmon or chicken makes it a perfect meal!

1 garlic clove
1/2 cup fresh Parsley

What You’ll Need To Know
Using a spiralizer, use the blade for wide ribbons and spiralize zucchini.
Heat a medium to large skillet over medium heat, and pour in sunflower oil.
Spear the clove of garlic sideways on the end of a fork. Sprinkle in the chili flakes on top of the oil and wait 30 seconds. Use the garlic clove to spread the chili around.
Add half of the zucchini ribbons and sauté or a about a minute or two. Add in the 2nd half and cook for another minute or two, moving around the zucchini with the fork with the garlic. Add in the fresh parsley, mixing it all together, and let is sit for two minutes.
Add salt, pepper, squeeze half the lemon, and add in the EVOO and mix together.
