Not only are zoodles (or zucchini noodles) a lighter pasta alternative, they also dont require any boiling, saving you time in the kitchen.


  • 2 medium zucchini (about 10 ounces each), trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons walnut oil or olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed, peeled, and halved lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 4 thin slices prosciutto or pancetta, torn
  • 1 medium tart green apple, cored and thinly sliced.
  • 4 ounces soft goat cheese


  1. Use a spiral vegetable slicer to cut noodles into long thin strands (or use a vegetable peeler to cut into ribbons). Use a kitchen scissors to cut through the strands to make them easier to serve.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a very large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until softened and just starting to brown. Add zucchini; cook and toss with tongs for 1 minute. Transfer to a serving bowl. Add walnuts to skillet. Cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes or until toasted. Add to bowl with zucchini. Add salt and crushed red pepper; toss to coat. Add remaining oil to skillet. Add prosciutto. Cook for 1 minute or until browned and crisp, turning once. Add to zucchini mixture along with apple. Toss to combined. Top with pieces of goat cheese.
