Not much else makes your kitchen smell better than melting, broiled mozzarella cheese.
The highlights of this meal? The oozing, velvety melted cheese with the soft warmed tomato and al dente zucchini noodles with aromatic fresh basil.
Seriously, this recipe is sinfully delicious, but under 170 calories per serving!
This recipe couldn’t be simpler – you basically broil tomatoes while you cook zucchini noodles in a skillet. This meal comes together in less than 30 minutes, but it tastes like something you’d wait an hour for at a restaurant!
As you cut through each bite, you get soft tomato, savory and decadent mozzarella and crunchy, fresh zucchini.
I actually adapted this recipe from this one from Real Simple. I literally Googled “simple pasta recipes” and it came up.
You can’t go wrong with this recipe and if you want to add some protein, try adding some chicken with the zucchini noodles or even topping the tomatoes with tuna before you sprinkle with the cheese and making this a tuna melt situation.
Mmm. Tuna melts.
Note: I am currently on my honeymoon and won’t be able to answer any questions or comments. Thank you for your patience and understanding while I enjoy this time with my…. husband!
