Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. Zucchini (ends trimmed)
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (or non-stick cooking spray)
  • 1 to 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 3/4 cup Cheese (a mix of parmesan, white cheddar, or mozzarella)

Instructions

  1. Wash the zucchini and cut the ends off. Grate each zucchini with a grater (or use the grating attachment on a food processor).

  2. Transfer to a bowl and squeeze zucchini with a paper towel or clean dish towel to remove excess water. Zucchini holds a lot of water so this will help in the cooking process.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Drizzle with olive oil or spray with cooking spray. Add zucchini and cook for 5-7 minutes or until tender. Add garlic with 1 minute left of cooking time. Stir in cheese and let it melt. I prefer to do a mix of parmesan cheese (for flavor) and white cheddar or mozzarella (because it melts so well and makes it creamy).

  4. Top with more grated parmesan cheese.
