Zucchini Ribbon "Pasta" with Fried Egg and Pecorino
3 large zucchinis, cut into thin ribbons on a mandoline (about 6 cups)
cup slivered almonds, toasted
1 tablespoon chopped scallions, light green parts only
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tablespoons freshly squeezed juice from about 1 lemon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
cup shaved Pecorino-Romano
1. In a large serving bowl, combine zucchini ribbons, almonds, and scallions. Whisk together 2 tablespoons olive oil and lemon juice. Pour over ribbons, toss to combine, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add cheese shavings and set aside.
2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 10-inch cast iron or non-stick skillet over high heat until shimmering. Reduce heat to medium and add eggs and cook until whites are set and yolks are still runny. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and place on top of ribbons. Serve immediately.

I've always found zucchini to have a rather watery texture. The picture looks appetizing and it definitely seems like a much healthier alternative to pasta...just not sure I'd enjoy the texture. If anyone has tried this I would love to hear what you thought of the finished product.
