Using a simple zucchini spiralizer or a vegetable julienne peeler, this simple meal is just requires a few ingredients. This recipe can be adapted to any way that you want. Add shrimp, sausage, other proteins, sauces, tomatoes or more vegetables to make it perfect fit for your family and menu.
Using a spirializer tool, spiralize zucchini into spirals or noodle strands. Set zucchini noodles aside.
Heat large pan on medium-high heat. Melt butter/oil, then add onion and garlic. Cook garlic until fragrant and translucent. Don't let the garlic burn.
Add zucchini noodles and cook until tender, about 3-5 minutes. Zucchini noodles cook really fast, so taste a strand as you cook and decide how firm or "al-dente" you want the zucchini. Don't overcook the zucchini noodles or else they'll become mush.
Add spinach and cook until spinach wilts.
Remove the pan from the heat, add parmesan cheese and season generously with salt and pepper to taste. Add chili flakes then serve warm.
