Zucchini season is winding down and I’ve been taking full benefit of it. We’ve made Roasted Zucchini Fries with Parmesan, Zucchini Roll-Ups with Goat Cheese and Peppers, and we’ve topped sautéed zoodles with pasta sauce and a few of these hen and turkey sausage meatballs for a fast dinner. Yum.
When I discovered a jar of sun-dried tomatoes within the pantry and a few goat cheese within the fridge, I got here up with Mediterranean Zucchini Noodles with Goat Cheese. I had learn an analogous recipe elsewhere that impressed me, however couldn’t discover it after I wished it (in fact). I’m positive now it can seem.
The sun-dried tomatoes actually make this dish by including sweetness. The goat cheese lends creaminess and a little bit of tang. The noodles make a fantastic dinner facet or a light-weight lunch that travels effectively.
No spiralizer? Many grocery shops promote zucchini already reduce into noodles. If yours doesn’t, try Taste of Home’s directions for making them with a vegetable peeler, knife, or grater.
