This year I was fortunate enough to get one of the community garden plots in my condo complex and I've had a great time tending to it this summer. Like most gardeners who plant zucchini I suddenly found myself with more squash than I could possibly eat. Sure, I gave some away, shredded and froze some, but I really wanted to use as much as I could while it was fresh.
I found this scrumptious-looking recipe for zucchini noodles on the excellent food blog, Kitchen Confindante. I even ordered one of those crazy shredding tools mentioned in the blog post to make the noodles. I have a mandolin which would do the job as well but being a bit clumsy I sliced open my thumb using the mandolin and decided my digits would be better served using the $5 tool.
The recipe was very simple and a perfect light meal for a warm summer night. The leftovers were terrific for lunch the next day too.
