Zucchini Noodles (Zoodles) with Mushrooms and Parmesan cheese

In this post, we’ll cook zucchini noodles with mushrooms. No fancy cooking skills needed—just straightforward recipe with easy steps to follow.

I cannot eat pasta. Not only because it has a gazillion of carbs lol, but flour really bothers my stomach. I am not sure whether I have gluten intolerance or something else.

In any event, zucchini noodles are an amazing pasta replacement. Add mushrooms, cheese or anything else to your liking and you got yourself a delicious meal.

Zucchini Noodles with Mushrooms and Parmesan cheese


  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1 quart of mushrooms, cut in large chunks
  • 2 pieces of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2-3 table spoon of thinly chopped white onion
  • Parmesan cheese – the more, the better in my opinion, shredded
  • Olive oil
  • Spices, salt, pepper
  • 1 tea spoon of red wine vinegar

Shred zucchinis into spirals using spiralizer. There are many types of zucchini noodle makers, some are simple, some are fancy. Check out amazon.com


  • Add some olive oil to large frying pan, place zoodles there, add red wine vinegar and  turn the burner on “high”.  Keep on stirring for about 10-15 min.
  • At the same time in the second frying pan put mushrooms, garlic, onion, add some olive oil and about 2 table spoons of water, turn on “high” and keep stirring until all liquid is evaporated.
  • I always use rock frying pans as I find that nothing sticks to them and only minimum amount of oil is required.
  • Transfer mushrooms to zoodles, add spices, salt, pepper to your liking.  Serve with LOTS of parmesan cheese :).
