Like many others, I had way too much to eat over Thanksgiving weekend. Since becoming a food blogger, I’ve become better at stopping myself from over-eating. But when I go back to visit my family, all that just flies out the window.

When I came back from my trip, I found myself craving a lot of vegetables. So of course I had to make a zucchini noodle dish. So far I’ve shared my one pot taco zucchini noodles and one pot lasagna zucchini noodles.  This zucchini noodle dish is even easier.

You cook the zucchini, add in the sauce, stir in cheese and top with mini pepperoni. I adore mini pepperoni and am always looking for an excuse to use them. This is an incredibly flavorful and cheesy dish. And it’s ready in less than 30 minutes.

A lightened up version of pizza pasta using zucchini noodles.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb zucchini spiralized
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup mini pepperoni divided
  • 1 tsp finely chopped parsley

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet, add 1 tbsp olive oil and bring to medium high heat. Add in zucchini and cook until zucchini releases water and is tender but still crisp. Drain water from zucchini. Place zucchini in a strainer and shake a few times to drain out more water.
  2. Pat dry zucchini noodles and add back to skillet. Add in tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano and basil. Bring sauce to a simmer. Stir in parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese and 1/4 cup mini pepperoni. Cook until cheese is melted and zucchini is evenly coated in sauce. 
  3. Reduce skillet to low heat. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese across the surface of the zucchini. Place remaining pepperoni on top of cheese. Sprinkle with parsley. Cover skillet with lid until cheese is melted. Remove skillet from heat and serve.

  1. Would you happen to have nutritional info for this dish?

  2. Looks great! How many servings would you say this is?

  3. I made this tonight and it was delicious! I was making normal pizza for my husband and made this for me…. He took a look at it and said, I would eat that!

  4. This tasted great, thanks! The zucchini cooked ended up being very little after I removed the water, so I’d double the amount of it next time.
