Zucchinetti Colitti

In our family, they rhyme.

Clean and pat dry several zucchini squashes. Trim ends. Slice lenghthwise into thin flat pieces. Then slice each piece into long thin strips. Like spaghetti.

In a skillet, heat olive oil and brown a small chopped red onion and a couple rough chopped Crimini mushrooms. Season with garlic powder, oregano to taste. Deglaze with half a cup dry red wine. Add 1 can whole San Marzano tomatoes. Chop and stir. Add basil and red pepper flakes. Stir. Reduce sauce by half on low heat. Add the zucchinetti strips and stir until coated with sauce and slightly soft.

Serve with grated cheese and lemon zest.

 

Can add any chopped meat in the browning process if desired for a heartier meal.
