Zucchini noodles are a great way to enjoy a pasta dish that packs more of a nutritional punch than a standard noodle. Zucchini also cooks in a flash, so this meal takes no time at all to whip up. Adding butter gives you the creamy texture and buttery flavor with no GMOs, trans fats, and a nutritional boost from healthy fats.
1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
3 medium zucchini, cut into noodles using a spiralizer, vegetable peeler, or julienned
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat butter in a large pan over medium heat until just melted. Add in garlic and sauté until fragrant (under a minute).
Add zucchini noodles and toss until coated. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until tender but still crisp.
Top with lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, and fresh mint, tossing again to coat.
