    I love zucchini pasta. Here is one recipe on how to make it.

    1, Cut lengthwise slices from 2 zucchini using a vegetable peeler (or use a veggie spiralizer), stopping when the seeds are reached. Turn zucchini over and continue ‘peeling’ until all the zucchini is in long strips; discard seeds. Slice the zucchini into thinner strips resembling spaghetti.

    2. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini in the hot oil for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup water and cook until zucchini is softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
    Stir in some home made pesto and serve.
    Presto! You have a delish low carb, gluten free, healthy meal!

    Enjoy!
    cheers
