Farmer's Market Friday - Zucchini Spaghetti

Tried this yummy recipe as a side dish with fresh corn on the cob and grilled chicken the other night.  It was fresh and a healthy option for everybody.  Not exactly pasta but pretty tasty and FRESH!

Zucchini Pasta
3/4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
3 zucchini, peeled into strips (I used the grater to make the strips and it worked well!)
1/4 cup fresh Parmesan, grated

1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add garlic and lightly brown. Add sesame seeds.
2. Stir-fry zucchini until golden brown and crispy, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Top with homemade tomato sauce and Parmesan.  You can also line the bottom of a dish with oil and add strips of zucchini, top with fresh tomatoes, basil, peppers and onions.  Add salt and pepper.  Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and top with fresh Parmesan.
