Rachel Holder's Zucchini Linguine Pasta

Posted: Updated:
Ingredients

6-8 medium zucchini
Spices to season (I use garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano.)
1 Jar of organic Marinara sauce (or make your own!)
Block of parmesan
 
Use a julienne peeler (or a mandolin slicer with the zucchini long-ways) to slice the zucchini into thin, noodle-like pieces. Spray a stoneware or glass baking dish with cooking spray and layer zucchini "noodles" on bottom. Sprinkle with seasoning (approx. 1/2 tsp each). Pour sauce over noodles. Place covered in microwave and cook on HIGH power for 5 minutes. Remove from microwave and sprinkle with fresh grated Parmesan cheese.
