This is something I came up with to try and do something with the pounds and pounds of zucchini blooming from my new garden. Definitely my favorite of all the ways I fix it. You need a spiralizer or food processor to make this one.


  • tbsp coconut oil or Skinny Fat ($5simplyhuman coupon code for $5 off)
  • 1 large (about 20-24 oz) zucchini
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • salt to taste
  • optional herbs (oregano, thyme, basil, ...)


  1. heat up olive oil in a pan
  2. spiralize the zucchini or put it through the chopper of a food processor (I wouldn't recommend cutting these into noodles by hand -- not fun) and put in the pan on medium low heat
  3. dump in tomatoes and spices
  4. stir, cover, and let simmer for about 10 minutes, or however long you want until "noodles" are the softness that you want
  5. serve
