Zucchini Pasta

by Stacey Amagrande

1 large onion, sliced thin
2 large zucchini, julienned
3 cloves garlic, sliced very thin
2 tablespoon parsley, minced
1 tablespoon lemon zest
3-4 T cooking oil
Salt and pepper

Heat 2 T of oil in a large pan; add onions season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium low heat, stirring often until onions caramelize. Be patient this takes 8-10 minutes at least, and this step really makes the dish! If the pan gets dry add a little oil. Once caramelized add the garlic and zucchini and cook 3 min more. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Finish with the lemon zest and chopped parsley! This makes a wonderful vegan, main course. Great add- ins: sun dried tomato, pine nuts, saute’ mushroom, artichoke hearts. Visit highdesertfarmersmarket.com for more recipes and info
