Tossed Zucchini Ribbons and Pasta
Years ago a friend gave me a cookbook and this was the one recipe I took away. The cookbook is long gone (I tried to find it but I must have given it away) but this recipe is a part of my repertoire. It's great in the summer when zucchini is abundant. It's fresh, it's easy, and it involves very little cooking so you aren't spending a lot of time in a hot kitchen.
It takes a few ingredients that you can get at your local farmers market or you will have in your pantry.
Using a vegetable peeler makes quick work of creating the zucchini ribbons.
I think this makes a great dinner on a summer day but you can also serve it as a side to grilled chicken or fish.
