Instructions
 

  • Salt the zucchini zoodles and wrap in a towel. Let the zoodles sit about 30 minutes to draw out moisture.
  • Cook the linguine pasta (if you are using) according to the package directions.
  • Heat a pan over medium with olive oil.
  • Sauté the onion and garlic until onion becomes translucent. Turn the pan down to a medium low.
  • Add more olive oil, if needed.
  • Add the zucchini zoodles and sauce paste to the pan.
  • As the zucchini heats up, the paste will thin out. Mix thoroughly with the zoodles.
  • Cook until the zoodles have softened to your liking.
  • In the meanwhile, cook the linguine on a pan with boiling water. Rinse them when the pasta is still "al dente" (it will tak around 8-10 minutes).
  • Add the pasta to the zoodles and sauce. Enjoy!
  • (For a low-carb option, simply skip the pasta and season your zoodles with the lemon tahini sauce)
