Spiralized Zucchini

My daughter got one of those new spiralizer toys, and one of the first things she did was cut up a some good sized zucchini

Which turned out to be more than she could use on her own, so she brought me a bag full

This is what I did with it, and it was so good that I'm thinking I might want one of those tools for my house!

1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage
10 ounces spiralized zucchini
1/4 medium green bell pepper diced
2 green onions finely sliced
1 clove garlic minced
6 thinly sliced baby bella mushrooms
1 large tomato diced
2 tbls olive oil
2 tsp dry basil
1 tbls dry parsley
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Parmesan cheese for garnish (optional)

In a large heavy skillet over medium high heat, break up and brown the sausage, drain off any meat fat and set meat aside

Heat olive oil and lightly saute the bell peppers, onions and garlic

Add mushrooms and heat until soft

Return sausage to the pan, add tomatoes, zucchini, basil, parsley and pepper flakes

Reduce heat and cover to heat zucchini and tomatoes through

Serve with Parmesan cheese and additional red pepper flakes for garnish

Great with crusty bread!
