Equipment

  • skillet
  • peeler

Ingredients
  

  • 4 zucchini
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • fresh herbs (a mix of fresh herbs -basil, parsley, thyme- finely chopped)
  • parmigiano reggiano cheese (Optional: Grated - for serving)

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the Zucchini: Wash the zucchinis and trim the ends. Use a vegetable peeler or a mandoline slicer to cut the zucchini into long, thin strips, resembling tagliatelle pasta.
  • Cook the Zucchini: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the zucchini tagliatelle, tossing gently to coat. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the zucchini is tender but still slightly crisp.
  • Season: Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the chopped fresh herbs and toss well to distribute evenly.
  • Serve: Transfer the zucchini tagliatelle to a serving dish. Optionally, sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese before serving.

Notes

Notes/Tips:
  • For added crunch, you can toss in some toasted pine nuts or slivered almonds with the herbs.
  • If you want a bit of heat, a sprinkle of chili flakes will do wonders.
  • Ensure not to overcook the zucchini to keep its tagliatelle-like texture.
  • This dish is best served immediately but can also be enjoyed at room temperature as part of a summer salad buffet.
