Ingredients
  • 1 medium-large zucchini (about 3 cups of spiral sliced zucchini pasta)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp garlic salt, or more to taste
Instructions
  1. Start with a washed zucchini. Cut the tip off but leave the stem on the other end so you can hold it while spiral slicing the zucchini. Starting with the end you cut, insert the zucchini into the spiral slicer and turn. I like to stop and break off the zucchini that has been cut after it has gotten about 6-8 inches long, then I simply resume turning the zucchini to cut more "pasta". Continue until the zucchini has made it as far into the spiral slicer as possible, but be careful of your fingers. The blades are very sharp!
  2. Pour the olive oil over the zucchini pasta and sprinkle with garlic salt while you are using your hand to toss the "pasta".
