Since everyone seems to searching for more ways to use up all that summer zucchini, let’s talk about this simple zucchini noodle recipe that’s packed with flavor. I have been making a version of this at least once a week for dinner and the latest one with turkey sausage by far has been my favorite. I normally make it with all zucchini for me and then add some real pasta for bigger eaters. The garlic, red pepper flakes, olive oil, butter, and Parmesan create a perfect light sauce and the sausage brings lots of earthy flavors and some needed protein. It’s also ready in about 20 minutes, which makes it perfect for a busy weeknight.
