Garnish: Fresh basil, shaved parmesan, toasted pine nuts or fresh lemon

  • 1 Cook Zucchini Veggie Spirals™ according to package directions. Drain well and keep warm.
  • 2 In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until fragrant and soft, 1-2 minutes.

  • 4 Garnish with basil, shaved parmesan, toasted pine nuts and a squeeze of lemon and serve immediately.

When cooking Green Giant Veggie Spirals™ Zucchini, always drain well before serving or adding to your favorite sauce. Warm lemons produce much more juice then refrigerated ones. If lemon has been refrigerated, microwave about 20 seconds before using for juice.
