This guilt-free "pasta" dish combines fresh zucchini noodles with sauteed kale, onions, roasted tomatoes, and creamy goat cheese. This is a sure-to-please, fresh dish that will be an instant favorite!
Servings: 2 servings
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ an onion thinly sliced
- 1 clove garlic grated or minced
- 1 ½ cups finely chopped kale leaves
- ½ cup grape tomatoes halved
- Salt to taste
- 2 medium zucchini spiralized or julienned with a vegetable peeler
- ¼ cup goat cheese plus extra for sprinkling
- 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion to skillet and saute for 2-3 minutes or until it starts softening and becoming translucent. Add garlic and stir, cooking for another minute or so.
Add kale, tomatoes and salt. Cook until the kale has wilted down and the tomatoes shrivel a bit.
Add spiralized zucchini to the pan and cook until the zucchini begins to release some of its liquid and soften.
Remove the skillet from the burner and add the goat cheese, tossing to coat all of the zucchini noodles. It should melt down and create a light "sauce."
Sprinkle pine nuts over top and sprinkle with extra goat cheese if desired. Serve immediately.*
