This was delicious! I had so much zucchini I made this two days in a row! The first time I followed the recipe exactly, except I had regular not white balsamic vinegar. It turned out fantastic! Very tasty! On the second day, I made it on “Meatless Monday” so I added portabella & Shitake mushrooms to make this the main course instead of a side dish, and it was AMAZING!!! Great recipe will be added in for my summer rotation as long as I can get good zucchini.

Most of the ingredients I used came from my CSA this week—zucchini, tomatoes, red onion, and basil. A very simple recipe that highlighted some of the wonderful flavors of summer.
Excellent. It tastes even better than pasta.

it turned out good... I added bell peppers, vegan cheese and marinara sauce.

I wanted a different way to cook zucchini, and I loved this recipe! I don't have a spiralizer so I used a mandolin, and I didn't have basil so I used fresh parsley and thyme. The white wine vinegar is what really makes this dish! I also added more tomatoes than the recipe called for. It's very fresh tasting, and easy to make.
So delicious and it was fun making the zucchini noodles!

Would definitely make again, but use more than 1 zucchini. I also substituted basil for rosemary and didn’t use vinegar.

I cooked a separate cod fish recipe with herbs and cherry tomatoes due to the low protein. I also added presto to the zucchini. Absolutely amazing!

Fantastic! Added more tomatoes than the recipe called for and let them cook for around 10-15 minutes in the onion and oil in a large cast iron skillet. I also cut a mix of zucchini and yellow squash. I would say a good ratio is 1 pint of tomatoes to every one zucchini and squash. I made 3 servings in all. I also added the white balsamic while everything was still cooking and coming together. I didn’t add it as a dressing. 3 pints of tomatoes, 3 squash, 3 zucchini, onion and garlic to taste, and a good amount of basil.

Really easy to cook, served it for a lunchtime snack. Next time will either use it as a side or a base for a chicken or fish meal
Impressed by how tasteful it turned out. I added some green olive pesto and grated some cheese on top when serving and it tasted quite like real pasta.

Was really good. Even the husband like it. I used pre-spiraled summer squash and chopped up a few Roma tomatoes instead of using cherry tomatoes. Other than that it was easy to make and will make it again

SOOOOGOOOOD. I added some coconut milk and curry paste and it was so goooood.. 💕A little time taking if you don’t own a spiralizer, like me..
Amazing! I added mushrooms and lime chicken strips and it was such a hit

My husband gave it a 4.5 out of 5. Easy, fast, cooked it and warmed it up later. Added red pepper.
I'm a 23 year old guy with little cooking experience. This turned out great! My mom is a super good cook and knows what tastes good, and she really liked it! Suprizingly easy to make.
OMG! summer in a pan! soooo delicious and healthy!!
Super good! Not sure how the achieved that color because mine is much darker, could be the mushrooms that I threw in
