Zoodles in White Wine-Lemon Sauce

Zoodles in White Wine-Lemon Sauce

What happens when zucchini meets a spiralizer? You get "zoodles," a healthy alternative to noodles.  


2 zucchini
Nonstick olive oil spray
1/2 cup diced onion, divided
1 1/2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lemon, zest and juice
1/16 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, divided
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/8 cup fresh basil, julienned
1/2 cup thinly sliced red cabbage


Preheat oven to 200˚F and line a baking sheet with paper towels.
Run zucchini through a spiralizer. Place noodles on the baking sheet and sprinkle with some salt. Place in the oven and let them sweat (about 5-10 minutes) while you prepare next step.
Heat a small saucepan with nonstick olive oil spray. Add 1/4 cup diced onion and sauté until translucent.
Add the garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon oregano. Simmer for two minutes and then add the white wine.
Let sauce simmer on medium high heat until the mixture reduces by half. It will take about 10-15 minutes. Then add fresh basil.
Remove the noodles from the oven and begin squeezing out the extra water with your hands. Rinse zucchini to remove salt.
Heat a skillet with nonstick olive oil spray and add remaining 1/4 cup onion and 1/4 teaspoon oregano. Add cabbage and zucchini noodles. Sauté until cabbage and noodles are al dente or soft depending on personal preference, about 5-8 minutes.
Serve each 3/4 cup serving with 1 tablespoon sauce.
Enjoy this fun side dish with our seared tuna and roasted red potatoes, with another entree or on its own. You can add in other veggies as well.
