Recipe Notes & Tips

  • You can slice your zucchini as thick or thin as you like it, just make sure that the slices are equal so they cook evenly.
  • For Whole30/Paleo: sprinkle with Nutritional Yeast Flakes for a cheesy type flavor.
  • I have not tried it, but I am guessing that zoodles would also work with this recipe.
