Cheesy Zucchini Noodles

Spaghetti Swap
Zucchini noodles are such a simple and brilliant idea I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't think of it myself. Sadly, the idea is from Eating Well but oh well, either way it's amazing dish. The thin strips of zucchini taste shockingly like pasta noodles once they are microwaved. You could also top the zucchini noodles with your favorite pasta sauce.
