Grilled Zucchini “Pasta” & Artichokes

Zucchini (like a lot of its squash cousins), is such a versatile vegetable. Because it doesn’t have much flavor on its own, it lends itself to become whatever you need it to be.

My favorite use for zucchini is as a substitute for pasta noodles.  I have cut them into long thin wide parpadelle-style noodles and grilled them until just tender.

Adding some fresh basil, marinated artichokes and some shredded rotisserie chicken are just a few of the delicious ingredients in this recipe for Grilled Zucchini Pasta.
