Directions

1. Prepare zucchini noodles using a spiralizer or a julienne peeler.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat with olive oil. Saute onion, and garlic for a minute, until the onion is softened but not browned. While it cooks, sprinkle with crushed red pepper, paprika and salt. Cook for about 2 minutes, occasionally stirring, until onions soften.

3. Add crushed tomatoes and bouillon cube dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling water. Add thyme, mix, and bring to a simmer for about 10-15 minutes, mixing occasionally, until the sauce reduces just a bit. Season with more red pepper and salt, if needed. In the end, while on simmer, add heavy cream, mix it in and cook for a couple of minutes.

4. Add spiralized zucchini and mix everything well to combine. Simmer on low, until zucchini are cooked through but still crisp.

5. Adjust seasoning, and serve hot immediately with grated parmesan, additional thyme, red pepper flakes and fresh cracked black pepper.
