-Stirring constantly will help keep ingredients moving around so they don’t clump together.

Seasoning Options:

-If you prefer a spicier dish, add more red pepper flakes.
-For an even lighter dish, skip the Parmesan cheese and use nutritional yeast instead.

Recipe Tips:

-Cut zucchini into thin strips to help it cook evenly without getting too mushy or breaking down.
