Zucchini noodles with cherry tomatoes

Making zucchini pasta is one of my favorite “under thirty minutes recipe” from the blog.

These vegetable noodles are so easy to prepare and the flavor and texture of them go fantastic with the flavor of the roasted cherry tomatoes and vegan parm. Best of all is that you have dinner on the table in no time at all.

The super flavorful cherry tomato sauce comes together in a pinch. It is as easy as adding the cherry tomatoes to a skillet or cast iron pan, turn the heat to medium-high and let them sit there until they start to burst. You add sliced garlic, salt, and pepper and you are done.

Meanwhile, the sauce is done, you just have to make the zucchini noodles which is so fun and easy. I use my Spiralizer (affiliate link), but if you don’t have one, don’t worry. Here are three different ways of making the noodles.

Here are three different ways to make zucchini noodles:

  1. The first picture is with the spiralizer (affiliate link); I have heard great things about this spiralizer from the brand Paderno (affiliate link). I have this spiralizer from the brand Brieftons and works very well (affiliate link).
  2. The second way is to use a regular vegetable peeler, stack the pieces and then cut them into ribbons.
  3. The third way to do them is with a vegetable julienne peeler. I have this julienne peeler from OXXO and love it.
