Lemon Garlic Zoodles with Cherry Tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella

Servings 4
Prep Time 35 minutes


  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves slivered garlic
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 1/2 pounds (2 packages) L&B Zucchini Noodles (“Zoodles”)
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 1 cup organic cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 cup fresh mozzarella pieces or cherry-size mozzarella balls
  • 2 tbsp fresh organic basil chiffonade cut into small ribbons


  1. In a skillet, sauté olive oil, garlic and hot red pepper flakes (optional) over medium-high to high heat for 15-30 seconds until golden but not brown or burnt.
  2. Add zoodles to pan and sauté for 5-7 minutes, tossing and turning zoodles throughout. Add lemon juice and lemon zest halfway through cooking.
  3. Have a colander/strainer ready with a bowl underneath and dump the zoodles into the colander, reserving the liquid. Let it drain until no more liquid is dripping and then add this liquid back to the pan. Reduce liquid at high heat for 3 minutes.
  4. Place zoodles into a large serving dish. Drizzle the lemony sauce over the zoodles and top further with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and basil chiffonade. Season to taste.
