HOW TO COOK ZUCCHINI PASTA NOODLES




How to make ZUCCHINI PASTA NOODLES... With this post, you will see the tool that I use to make my zucchini noodles.  These days I prefer the angel hair zoodles. :) ~ Jen

Someone asked me how to cook the zucchini noodles.  Place in boiling salted water for 2 minutes.  Remove to a colander and place under running, cold water to stop the cooking. Let them sit in the colander to drip-dry about 10 minutes and then pat dry with paper towels as well. Now you're ready to toss your "pasta" with your favorite, creamy Alfredo sauce or whatever you prefer.

OR you can place them on paper towels in a 200 to  250 deg. F. oven and bake for 20 to 30 minutes and then mop up the extra moisture with the paper towels.  This will stop your noodles from making your spaghetti sauce or Alfredo sauce watery.  Here is a great tutorial on the various methods (CLICK here).

In the previous post, Chicken Alfredo Veggie Medley, I simply warmed up the noodles in the skillet with the chicken and veggies until they were as soft as I like them, so I skipped the boiling part.

If you like, you can add the drained, par-boiled zucchini noodles to melted butter in a skillet, saute briefly and sprinkle with grated, fresh Parmesan cheese or other hard cheese of choice; now you have a tasty side dish. By the way, do it in two batches rather than all at once.  Sprinkle with, chopped fresh herbs for garnish, if desired.

Someone just commented below that she throws it in a covered dish and into the microwave oven for 1 to 2 minutes.  That's an alternative.  Thank you for that tip. :)
