Ingredients

  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 3 tablespoon butter, unsalted
  • 2 tablespoon flour, all-purpose
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 2 tablespoon parsley, fresh

Serve With

  • 4 medium apple

Instructions

  • Spiralize zucchini. Mince garlic. (No spiralizer? You can thinly slice the zucchini instead).
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add zucchini and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and heated through; about 3-5 minutes. Set aside.
  • Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the saucepan. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant; about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
  • Gradually whisk in milk, thyme and oregano. Cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in half and half and Parmesan and cook until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed; season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stir in zucchini and pasta and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley.
