Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients

28 oz. (about 4 medium) zucchini

3 cups roughly chopped cauliflower

2 oz. (about 1/4 cup) mashed avocado

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 tsp. chopped garlic

1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper

1/2 cup seeded and chopped tomato

Optional seasoning: additional salt

Optional topping: chopped fresh basil or cilantro

Directions

Using a spiral vegetable slicer like the Veggetti, cut zucchini into spaghetti-like noodles. (If you don't have a spiral veggie slicer, peel zucchini into thin strips, rotating the zucchini after each strip.) Roughly chop for shorter noodles.

Place cauliflower in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add 1/4 cup water. Cover and microwave for 5 minutes, or until soft.

In a blender or food processor, combine cooked cauliflower, avocado, Parm, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add 1/4 cup warm water. Blend on high speed until smooth and uniform.

Bring an extra-large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir zucchini noodles until hot and slightly softened, about 3 minutes.

Transfer noodles to a strainer, and thoroughly drain excess liquid.

Remove skillet from heat, re-spray, and bring to medium-low heat.

Add noodles, sauce, and tomato. Cook and stir until hot and well mixed, about 2 minutes.
