  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/4 cup romano
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Using a Spiralizer create zucchini noodles.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add zucchini noodles and cook 2-3 minutes until noodles are tender but still have a bite to them. Remove pan from the heat and allow the noodle to rest for 3-5 minutes so they release excess moisture. Drain the noodles, reserving liquid.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together cheeses, pepper and enough of the reserved zucchini liquid to make a thick sauce.
  4. Pour sauce over noodles and toss to coat. If the sauce is too thick, add more of the zucchini water.
  5. Sprinkle with more cheese and serve
