Sausage Parmesan Zucchini Pasta Skillet

Ingredients:
4 zucchini, spiral sliced or julienned (see ordering info for the fabulous slicer below)
2 tbsp EVOO
1 lb mild Italian Sausage, casings removed (I used organic Italian chicken sausage)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 sweet onion, finely diced
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
sea salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp fresh parsley

Directions:
Slice zucchini and place in a colander over a large bowl.

zucchini Noodles in a bowl

Salt zucchini liberally and set aside for 30 minutes. Do not skip this step! It makes the zucchini turn out more like noodles by reducing the water content. This is how much water came out of my colander…

liquid from draining zucchini noodles

After excess water has drained from the zucchini, rinse zucchini well (very important or you will have a salt overload) and squeeze out excess water. Pat zucchini dry with paper towels and set aside.

Heat olive oil over medium heat. Cook onion, garlic and sausage until sausage is lightly brown. Add pepper flakes and zucchini to the pan.

Toss to combine and cook for 3-4 minutes to soften the “noodles” and season to taste with salt and p

epper. Toss with parmesan cheese and garnish with fresh parsley.

  1. Every time I see spiralized zucchini I remind myself that I want one! I have a julienne peeler, but the spirals look too cool.

    It was nice meeting you this weekend! Hope you got home safe and sound. 😀

  2. Made this for dinner tonight, and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for a great recipe!

      1. Just a quick note back, have made this several times now and it’s soooo amazing! One of our favorites! 🙂

  3. Ooooh yummy! I routinely make these type of zucchini noodles so I just need to add some sausage next time!
