Add All Ingredients

2 tablespoons Big Y extra virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 (16-ounce) package zucchini noodles (about 2 medium zucchini, spiralized)

1 large tomato, chopped

3/4 cup basil, torn into pieces

1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

1 teaspoon cornstarch

2 teaspoons cold water

-- Salt, to taste

DIRECTIONS

1. Heat olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook 2 minutes while stirring.
2. Add zucchini noodles and cook, while tossing with tongs, about 5 to 7 minutes. (Note: Do not overcook; zucchini noodles should be softened but not mushy.)
3. Stir in tomatoes, basil and parmesan cheese. Cook for 1 minute.
4. Use tongs to transfer noodles, tomatoes and basil to a serving dish. Leave liquid in the skillet and bring to a simmer.
5. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and cold water then whisk into simmering liquid. Cook while whisking, until the liquid thickens to a sauce, about 1 minute. Taste sauce and season with salt if desired.
6. Pour sauce over zucchini, tomatoes and basil. Top with additional parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
