It's Foodie Friday and I have another great recipe from Melissa Joulwan of WellFed. Zucchini, tomatoes and basil are all in the height of the season right now. What better way to cook them up then as a quick and delicious noodle dish? Add grilled protein of your choice for a fast and delectable meal.
ZUCCHINI NOODLES WITH FRESH TOMATO-BASIL SAUCE
1. Cut the tomatoes into 1/2-inch dice, cut the olives in half, chiffonade the basil (how-to video). Place in a large bowl and toss gently to mix.
2. In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, garlic, salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes until combined. Continue to whisk and drizzle in the olive oil. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss gently to combine. Allow to marinate 1 hour. (The tomato juices will gather in the bottom of the bowl to make a magical elixir infused with flavor. This tomato broth is part of the sauce, and it’s luscious.)
3. Julienne the zucchini with a spiralizer or julienne peeler. Place the julienned zucchini in a colander or wire strainer and toss generously with salt (about 1 tablespoon) until the strands are lightly coated. Allow the zucchini to sit for 20-30 minutes to remove excess water. Rinse with running water, drain well, and pat dry with a clean dish towel.
4. Taste the tomato sauce and add more salt and pepper, if necessary. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add the zucchini noodles. Sauté them in the dry pan until just tender, about 1-2 minutes. Remove to a serving dish and top with the room-temperature tomato sauce.
