This is going to be on the menu all summer.

I love it. I love it. I LOVE IT.

3 medium zucchini cut into spiral spaghetti shape

3 cloves minced garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon salt or more if you like

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

3 tablespoons sun dried tomatoes, cut into julienne strips

1/2 cup cooked baby peas

1/2  to 3/4 cup diced Genoa salami , pancetta or bacon cooked till it  is crisp

20 sliced fresh basil leaves

3/4 cup ricotta cheese

One tablespoon lemon zest

Sauté the garlic in the oil till it is golden brown and fragrant

Add the zucchini, garlic powder, sun dried tomatoes, salt and pepper

Stir fry for  one to two minutes

Do not cook any longer or else the zucchini will get mushy

Take off the heat and add the peas, basil, lemon zest, salami  and ricotta cheese

This is a delicious meal. Enjoy.
