Zucchini with Spicy Romesco and Wilted Chard

This recipe calls for a spiral slicer, which cuts the zucchini into thin, pasta-like strands for a delicious take on the “classic” zucchini pasta with marinara. No spiral slicer in your kitchen? Try a julienne vegetable peeler or mandoline.

Made this tonight. Delicious. Gotta use local tomatoes for flavor and freshness if you are doing this raw!

OMG I had this for dinner this evening and it was divine! So glad I made it.
