Which sauce to use?
To be honest sometimes I like to eat it as is and enjoy the natural flavor. But feel free to use any sauce you like! Some suggestions for homemade recipes:
You an also use store-bought pesto or alfredo.
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 zucchinis cut with a spiralizer
- 2 cloves garlic diced
- ½ lemon juiced
- salt and pepper to taste
- ¼ cup fresh basil chopped
- 3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese optional
- Press "saute" and pour olive oil in the Instant Pot.
- Add minced garlic and cook on saute for 1 minute.
- Add zucchinis, lemon juice and salt and pepper.
- Cook on saute for 30-40 seconds, so the zucchinis remain crispy and firm.
