The sauce is quick to whip up and has layers of flavor, from the lemon zest to the capers and ricotta. Top it off with a little fresh basil and you are good to go! Its so good and SO easy! Yay for quick summer meals. 

To make my "noodles" I used a Paderno Spiralizer!

    Thanks for a great, easy recipe! This was my very first attempt at anything spiralized. The spiralizer had arrived in the mail 3 days earlier and I was a little intimidated. I really wanted a "win" for my first recipe so my 4 sons and husband would be open to trying more. I am trying to get them to join me in healthy eating, but there is no point in wasting time, food, energy, and money on dishes they won't eat. Brittany, this was a win! Good job!
