Fresh and Flavorful Margherita Zoodle Bowl

If you’re craving a dish that’s both light and satisfying, look no further than this Margherita Zoodle Bowl. This dish combines the fresh flavors of a classic Margherita with the health benefits of zucchini noodles, or ‘zoodles.’ It’s perfect for a quick lunch, dinner, or even a vibrant addition to your meal prep lineup. Ready in just minutes, it’s packed with fresh tomatoes, aromatic basil, and creamy mozzarella, all tied together with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic glaze.


  • 2 medium zucchinis, spiralized into zoodles
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup fresh mozzarella balls (ciliegine), halved
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Balsamic glaze, for drizzling


  1. Begin by preparing your zoodles using a spiralizer. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a julienne peeler or purchase pre-spiralized zoodles from the store.
  2. In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the zoodles and sauté for 2-3 minutes until they are slightly softened but still have a bit of crunch.
  3. Season the zoodles with salt and pepper to taste, and transfer them to a serving bowl or divide them among individual bowls.
  4. Top the zoodles with the halved cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella balls, and torn basil leaves.
  5. Finally, drizzle with balsamic glaze just before serving. Adjust the seasoning once more if needed.
  6. Serve your Margherita Zoodle Bowl immediately and enjoy the burst of fresh flavors!

Note: This dish is best enjoyed fresh, but you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one day. Remember that zoodles release water over time, so it’s better to enjoy them shortly after preparation.
