A #Not Recipe With Zoodles And The Real Deal At Food52 Pasta Night
This a #not recipe. I’m having fun posting on Food52’s new app and decided to share this, it’s really more of an idea than a recipe I guess you could say.
It started with zoodles, you know zucchini noodles, some oven roasted tomatoes, burrata and shaved parmigiana. Simple right?
Heat some olive oil in a skillet, add some garlic sliced thinly and cook until garlic is softened but not brown. Add the zoodles, season with salt and pepper and may be a little crushed red pepper and toss them around in the olive oil and garlic until the zoodles are warmed, I let them cook about 5 minutes. Remove and place in your bowl or on your plate.
If your burrata is not room temperature put in the microwave for about 20 seconds. In the same pan heat your tomatoes if they have been refrigerated or if you made the tomatoes and they are still warm just spoon on top of the zoodles. Take some of the lovely burrata and place on top of the tomatoes, spoon some of the tomato juices that are mixed with olive oil on top of the burrata. Shave some parmigiana or romano on top and enjoy.
Make sure each layer is seasoned with salt and pepper.
This dish is low carb, delicious and nutritious and also really quick and easy to put together.
Last night I went to the Food52 HQ in Chelsea to enjoy an evening of great food and company. First of all the offices that house Food52 are incredible, light filled, lofty and beautiful. The space is designed so well, it works beautifully and gives the feeling of home rather than office. I could not get any photo’s of the completed pasta dishes for ambiance the light was very dim and it just didn’t work with my iphone. The tables were set up communal style, the dishes and flatware were exactly what you will find in the food52 shop, beautiful. Their kitchen is a dream, so beautiful and practical at the same time.
My fizzy aperol cocktail
I love everything but for me the star of the show was dessert, so simple but the combination was amazing. Olive oil gelato, crumbled biscotti, beautiful sliced oranges all of this drizzled with good olive oil and chiffonade of basil. Profoundly delicious. I begged for the gelato recipe and Amanda said it is a community recipe that will be in the new Ice Cream cookbook. Really it’s the best olive oil gelato I have ever had.
It all looks luscious!
It really was, thanks Maria.
Hi Suzanne. Your zoodle dish looks lovely; perfect for lunch, so I wish I had it now! 😀
I enjoyed your narrative about the event. It sounds great. I’m so glad you got to attend. You’re right about that gelato — wow! Mega hugs
Thanks Teagan, it was a great evening. I am really kind of obsessed with zoodles now. LOL. Thanks so much.
I really mean to give them a try. I think zucchini would be a good pasta substitute for me. I’m beginning to get the feeling that there are too many things I don’t take time for, because they’re just for me. Here’s to zoodles. 😀
YUM! Burrata is easily one of my favorite things to cook with, so I’m going to have to try this. My friends went nuts over a caprese salad I made a while back with fried green tomatoes, burrata, thin slices of basil and a strawberry and balsamic glaze.
OMG, that sounds incredible. Fried green tomatoes, what a wonderful idea. I like burrata with or on anything it’s the best. I love the sound of your salad. Thank you so much.
You MUST try it.
I love the strawberry balsamic glaze, oh I will.
That’s a great idea to share Suzanne!
Lucky you to hav attended that event…looks so much fun!!
It was a really fun evening, thanks so much Sonal
I have an Italian Shoppe by me that sells pastry and gelato to eat in or take out
And I must say…once you have been spoiled by gelato there is no going back to Bryers 🍨
Isn’t gelato the best. I love it, dense, creamy, not as sweet as ice cream. Hands down the best. My favorite gelato is at Eataly. OMG, so good. Love little Italian shops we have a few here in Brooklyn but Mom and Pops are quickly becoming a thing of the past, so sad.
Suzanne, the dish is amazing, the simplicity at its best. And the event looks magical, Food52 at its best, and I am so happy you had an opportunity to attend. You got me hooked on that spiralizer and the olive oil gelato — off I go to order the former, and google the latter 🙂
I had a wonderful time last night and I am totally hooked on the olive oil gelato, so good. Thanks so much Aleksandra.
What a special invite and night for you-well deserved! Thanks for sharing; I really enjoyed this post! Cheryl xo
It was really a great night. Thanks so much Cheryl. Have fun in the mountains.
Yes, I know you enjoyed it! We arrived before noon, had lunch and two of mine ended up sliding into the pond-LOL mud yes, a bit…HaHa xo
Lol have a blast 😄😄😄
It is sure to be a Muddy-Blast! LOL xo
What a wonderful event! Everything looked amazing including your beverage! Reminded me of what we drank in Italy.
Yes everything was really good the drink as well. It was like a night in Italy. So nice. Thank you so much.
I love zoodles Suzanne. Thanks for another easy dish to make 🙂
I know Lynne, you and I are zoodle obsessed. LOL. Thank you so much.

So good for you Dev, you have to try it.
Glad to see you are enjoying your spiralizer Suzanne! I have yet to make zoodles with mine, but that is my plan sometime soon! I spiralized sweet potatoes in a casserole dish last weekend and it added a fun touch to the dish 🙂
I haven’t done anything but zucchini but intend do do some radishes and beets and carrots. Thanks so much Heather.
This looks great , I wish I was there.
Thank you so much Gerlinde. It was really nice 😄
Wow can I come along next time!
Sure, I’ll give you enough notice so you can get here. We would have had fun Lynn.
Oh we would!
This dish looks so delicious, Suzanne! Sounds like you had a great evening!
I did , thanks so much Nancy.
Wow, what a fun and stunning event! That olive oil was to die for – I remember the first time I tried it at L’Artusi and was so taken aback by how creamy and delicious it was!
I love your zoodle dish, my favorite kind of recipe… a non-recipe! Perfectly topped with burrata – what could be better!!!
Have a wonderful weekend 🙂
Thank you so much. the food was really good and loved seeing food52 office. I am trying to cut carbs and eat more zoodles rather than pasta honestly, it’s such a great alternative.
Wow, those looks amazing event! And the food looks so delicious! I love the idea to make the pasta (no carbohydrate). They all full of goodness. I think you have a memorable day there. 🙂
Thank you so much Mochi, it was great. loved seeing where Food52 does their magic and the food was amazing.
Love the zoodles and wow, what an amazing event to have attended in Chelsea. You’re soon going to have to buy shares in that company Suzanne 🙂 Loved all the dishes, and what a brilliant idea for dessert, so simple, elegant and satisfying!
Thank you Loretta. I have been a member of Food52 for such a long time I do feel like it’s home.
Your #non recipe is delish Suzanne, and everything about the dinner night looks awesome. You are such a lucky gal living so near Food 52 offices… dreaming of being there some day when I go visit NY again! It has been a while now…
Oh please visit NYC and stay with me!!!! Thank you so much.
I´m taking your word!! haha!
Such a lovely post Suzanne.. Loved your picture of zoodles and I am sure it is tasty as well. I think I am going to invest in a spiralizer soon. I love everything about food52 event. Everything is gorgeous.
Thank you so much Devangi, it was wonderful, had a great time.

You’re a Food52 superstar 😀😀
I am just one of the crowd but thank you so much. I am still dreaming about that dessert. OMG, I have to try to make olive oil gelato.
I could swear I commented on this earlier today, but now I’m not seeing it. So if I’m double posting you’ll know why! Anyways, you are so fortunate to be able to attend Food52 events! It sounds like you had a great time and I just love your #not a recipe zoodles! I have yet to get a spiralizer.
Thank you Kathryn, yes do feel lucky living in NYC there is always so much to do here and had a great time at Food52. You have to get a spiralizer, it’s great.
The food looks so delicious! Wow and the olive oil gelato sounds so yum, would love to try that out:)
That olive oil gelato was amazing. I have to try to make it myself. Thanks so much Freda.
Ooh sounds like so much fun! The food looks amazing!
It was, thanks so much. Had a great time.
Everything looks delicious and what a cool event! I love your #not recipe 😀
Thank you so much it was such a nice evening, the food was great and it was so nice seeing the Food52 HQ.
Hi Suzanne, I can’t even imagine what olive oil gelato taste like, I bet it is delicious. Looks like a wonderful event.
It’s amazing Cheri, I want to try making it but now the standard is very high after the gelato I had that night. I will be very disappointed if it’s not as good. The recipe is coming out in the new food52 ice cream cookbook so I may wait.
I love the zoodle recipe and have pinned it. Such a gorgeous dish, and must taste wonderful. I also loved seeing the pictures of food52. What a beautiful place and dessert! Thanks for sharing, Suzanne!
What a night it must have been…thanks for sharing your experience, Suzanne! As for your zoodle dish with burrata? Mmm mmm, sounds perfect.
I am hungry already by looking at these pictures
Hello and thank you so much for stopping by. The zoodles are just the thing now when it’s so hot, minimal cooking and very light. Thank you again.
wow this looks delicious !
This looks like such a fun evening, hopefully one day I’ll be able to come along to something like that!
