Guilt-Free Zucchini “Fettuccine” with White Wine and Lemon Sauce

After my Facebook post about this meal I originally made with shrimp (which I recommend) I had to recreate it to share… except I didn’t have any more shrimp.  Here I used chicken. You can use pretty much any protein you’d like. This recipe is good for one person. Double it for two people.

1/4 c. Diced Mushroom (optional)
1/4 c. Diced Onion
1 Med. Zucchini
1/4 c. Dry White Wine
1 tsp Lemon Juice (fresh is good too)
1 TBS Butter
Salt and Pepper
(3) Cloves Diced Garlic
2 TBS Olive Oil
Parmesan cheese (Fresh grated is good too)
1 Chicken breast cooked and large- diced or about 8 Cooked Shrimp (pick your protein)

Use a cheese slicer (or a knife) to slice your zucchini

Then use your knife to slice the slices you just made into fettuccine- looking strips. Set aside.

Melt TBS butter in a saute pan and add your mushrooms and onion.
Add a dash of salt and pepper. When the onions turn translucent, add the diced garlic.

When the veggies start to brown a bit and the pan is starting to look dry, deglaze the pan with a splash of wine (about 1/4 c) add the lemon juice and simmer for 1 minute.

Add the Zucchini and cooked chicken or shrimp, 2 TBS of olive oil and salt and pepper again. Gently stir and cover. Cook about 2 minutes until zucchini is al dente and protein is reheated! Uncover, add a few shakes of parm. cheese, stir again and enjoy!

YUMMO!
