Zucchini noodles aren’t just for using as a noodle alternative, they’re great to stir into pastas as another way to enjoy zucchini! This summertime friendly pasta does exactly that!
Zucchini and Grilled Corn Pasta with Chicken Sausage and Garlic-Basil Dressing
When I first started this blog, I wouldn’t have dared to post a “regular” pasta recipe. I was basically screaming at the top of my lungs, “You don’t need to eat pasta anymore!” and that was just because that was my M-O: to get people to spiralize as a way to eat pasta!
However, things have changed, and I’ve realized over the years that there are more ways to enjoy zucchini noodles and one of those ways is to spiralize zucchinis into chip slices and use them as pasta salads, in salads, in soups, as pizza toppings, and even stirred into pasta dishes!
It’s quick, easy, and an enjoyable, quick-cooking zucchini shape to incorporate into your pasta dishes – ditch the cubes! What I love most about this dish is that it’s packed with summertime produce: corn, tomatoes, zucchini, and basil. You can literally shop for this one at the farmer’s market.
The dusting of Parmesan at the end is purely optional, but I think it adds a nice salty kick and complements the rest of the ingredients. And if you’re a vegetarian, ditch the chicken sausage or use an alternative, like No Evil Foods brand, which I’ve been loving lately.
