For the zoodles:

  • Run squash through a spiralizer, or cut into long julienne strips, about ¼ inch wide. Place the zoodles in a large colander and sprinkle with kosher salt, lifting and turning to coat each strip. Let stand over a bowl for 30 minutes.
  • Rinse zoodles then squeeze them gently to remove excess moisture.
  • When ready to cook, place a dry non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When pan is hot add zoodles and cook for 1-2 minutes, turning gently.
  • Turn heat to low, add olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper to taste.

For the meat-tomato sauce:

  • Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, and ground beef, breaking up the chunks into small pieces.
  • When meat is cooked halfway through, add the onions, garlic, celery, and carrot, sautéing until vegetables are soft, about 15 minutes more.
  • Add the Kosher salt and the white wine. Cook until the wine has evaporated.
  • Add the tomatoes, oregano and saute an additional 15 minutes. Taste and correct for salt. Serve sauce over zoodles and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
