Prep Time: 15 min   Total Time: 15 min   Servings: 2


Ingredients:

1 medium sized green zucchini squash
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper, to taste
fresh basil or arugula leaves, sliced 1/4-inch

Instruction:

Trim both ends of squash; use a mandoline with a 1/8-inch width tooth blade to make long lengthwise spaghetti-like strands. If you do not have a mandoline use a large knife or vegetable peeler to cut thin slices then cut them into lengthwise julienne strips to resemble pasta.

Put them in a bowl, drizzle with a small amount of lemon juice, mix with salt and pepper. Twirl small amounts of the strands on a long-tined fork, slip them off onto serving plates piling up as high as possible (see my photograph) for a gourmet presentation and serve immediately.


Garnish
with sliced basil or arugula and serve with a main entree it is a delicious and easy recipe.

Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
