Zucchini “Fettuccine” with Tomato Sauce



  • 4 large zucchini or yellow squash
  • 5 medium vine-ripened tomatoes
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil,
  • plus more for drizzling
  • ½ clove garlic, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Trim and peel the zucchini, then use a vegetable peeler to thinly slice lengthwise into wide ribbons (stop when you get to the seeds). Cut the ribbons into ¼-to-½-inch-wide strips to make them look like fettuccine. Rinse well and pat dry.
  2. Meanwhile, peel the tomatoes using a sharp vegetable peeler, then halve horizontally and squeeze out the seeds. Puree 1 tomato with the olive oil, garlic, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Transfer to a bowl. Chop the remaining 4 tomatoes and add to the bowl; basil, oregano, and salt to taste.
  3. Divide the zucchini among bowls and top with the tomato sauce. Top with parmesan cheese and drizzle with olive oil.
