  • 2 medium/large zucchini
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 6-7 medium cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • freshly grated parmesan cheese for topping


  • Rinse zucchini under cold water and peel
  • Cut off top and bottom edge of zucchini and put it through the spiralizer**
  • Then put your zucchini noodles in a colander and sprinkle with generous amount of salt
  • Let sit about 20-30 minutes. The goal is to remove as much moisture from the noodles as possible
  • Meanwhile in large skillet saute onions, garlic, mushrooms, salt, and pepper in butter and olive oil about 8-10 minutes
  • Rinse zucchini noodles and pat dry. Combine with onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook several more minutes.
  • Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese


*If you don't have a spiralizer you can just thinly slice the zucchini.
