Security: Public
In my office building there is a small Italian restaurant that serves a few "low calorie" dishes. Most of them are also gluten free. When I inquired about "Zuchinni Linguini" I was pleasantly surprised that it contained no pasta whatsoever. Zuchinni's are cut in small strips to mimic long pasta and are simply sauteed in sauce, olive oil, and garlic. I thought I'd share the recipe.

Servings: 3 (can easily be doubled)
Total Cost With Salad: about $9-10
Total Cost Without Salad: <$5

Zuchinni Linguini
4 small-medium zucchinis.
1 can of crushed tomatoes - 28oz
1 small can of tomato sauce - 8oz
Dash of Franks Red Hot Sauce
Italian Spices

Salad (you can make whatever salad you choose, but this is what we made)
1/2 bag mixed lettuce add fresh spinach leaves
1/2 of a tomato
1 cucumber
1 apple
Handful of Broccoli or Bean sprouts
Dressing of your choosing
Parmesan Cheese to taste


1. Prepare Salad. Slice and dice to your liking.

2. Cut Zucchini into thin strips. Do not peel

3. Sautee Zucchini in olive oil and garlic

4. When Zuchinni is half cooked, add both cans of tomatoes. Add your favorite Italian spices and add a few dashes of hot sauce.

5. Simmer for at least 15 minutes so tomato sauce can cook throughly.

6. Make sure zucchini is cooked thoroughly.
7. Serve & Enjoy!

This is an easy and fun dish to make. Gluten Free and delicious. it gives you that "pasta feeling" without actually having Pasta. I know there are gluten free pastas out there but sometimes you just want something different. The dish also heats up well as leftovers. Great to bring to work. Here is a photo of the finished product:
