Lemon RicottaZucchini Noodles with Chicken and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Lemon Ricotta Zucchini Noodles from The Healthy Bachelorette

I have heard from many of our followers that they have gotten spiralizers recently, and I am so excited about that!! I love how you can take one of your favorite pasta dishes, and create it into a healthy low carb dish that literally takes half the time.

This dish is inspired by a recipe I saw on Pinterest. I added some flare and used low carb zucchini noodles instead of spaghetti (which has 45 grams of carb per 1 cup cooked…a cup of pasta is not very much!). Proof that any pasta recipe you see can be transformed into a guilt-free dish by using zucchini or summer squash noodles! What are some of your favorite pasta dishes that you want to make with the spiralizer? Be sure to leave a comment and/or recipe below and we will try to re-create it!

Lemon Ricotta Zucchini Noodles with Chicken and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Serves: 2 (or 1 and 1 lunch)

Ingredients

  • 6oz grilled chicken breast, sliced
  • 3-4 zucchini
  • 2 Tablespoons julienne cut sun dried tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, separated
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup fresh ricotta
  • Black pepper
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish
  • Lemon slices for garnish

Directions:

  1. Spiralize zucchini using the medium sized noodle blade (like spaghetti).
  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat, and add 1 Tablespoon of the olive oil to the pan. Add zucchini and sun dried tomatoes and toss to cook about 2-3 minutes.
  3. While zucchini is cooking, combine the rest of the olive oil, lemon juice & zest, ricotta and black pepper in a small bowl and mix with a fork.
  4. Add the ricotta sauce to the zucchini noodles and toss to coat.
  5. Divide the noodles between 2 large bowls. Top each bowl with 1/2 of the sliced chicken breast and lemon slices.
  6. Grate Parmesan cheese over each bowl, serve and enjoy!
