Make your spaghetti dishes healthier with zucchini noodles. This simple white sauce is excellent served with spiralized vegetable noodles.


For Zoodles:

  • 3 medium zucchini spiralized
  • 2 tablespoons butter

For Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • salt & black pepper to taste


For Zoodles

  1. Use spiralizer to make vegetable noodles out of zucchini.
  2. For best results, place zucchini noodles on paper towels to absorb moisture for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in large skillet or pot. Add in vegetable noodles and stir fry until noodles are softened and bend easily like pasta.

For Sauce

  1. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook just until fragrant.
  2. Add in cream and cheese. Stir over medium heat until cheese has melted and sauce is thickened.
  3. Stir in seasonings.
  4. Serve warm over vegetable noodles.

Recipe Notes

Although draining as much liquid out of the zucchini noodles as possible and stir frying them first gives the best results, they can be softened in the sauce if desired.
