Linguine and Zucchini Spaghetti (Zoodles)

Whats for dinner?

This recipe for Linguine and Zucchini can be a simple meatless meal or the perfect accompaniment to a simple grilled protein such as chicken or fish. Use a mandolin, spiralizer or a julienne peeler to create fresh zucchini spaghetti; toss with some cooked linguine; add chopped marinated artichokes, along with a touch of lemon juice and cream, and you have a delicious meatless dinner in less than 30 minutes.

 

serve as a side, or as a quick meatless main course

 

Marinated artichokes are a great addition to the many textures of the pasta; the linguine being soft, the zucchini spaghetti maintains a bit of its crunch and the artichokes are right in-between. I ALWAYS rinse my artichokes as I find the flavor of the oil used in most preparations to be slightly off, but I still like the texture of the marinated ones over frozen.

Linguine and Zucchini is also a great side dish for a simple grilled or baked protein. Here I paired it with some Grilled Halibut with Lemon and Parsley that was prepared as skewers. The flavors were great together as both have just a hint of lemon.
