  • 6 whole zucchini 

  • 2 teaspoons salt 

  • 3 tablespoons margarine 

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated



  • Begin by slicing the zucchini to make thin strips, similar to noodles.

  • Mix in the 2 tablespoons of salt with the zucchini. Put the zucchini in a strainer and drain for 30 minutes.

  • Boil a large pot of water. Place zucchini in the boiling water and cook for 1 minute. Drain the zucchini and instantly rinse with cold water to prevent the zucchini from being overcooked.

  • In a large skillet, add the margarine and cook over medium high heat. Place zucchini and garlic in the skillet and stir for 5 minutes or until it is tender. Add salt and pepper until desired taste and top with Parmesan cheese.
