Basil Zucchini Noodles with Grilled Corn

I have to admit, we are hooked on to Zucchini noodles at our home. It's so much healthier than the starchy noodles, fills you up and are super quick to make. I don't have a tool to make the zucchini noodles to come out in exact round noodles. So I just use a peeler to make flat noodles out of Zucchini. This is how they look.

Zucchini is almost out of season now, while it was in season, I was buying them from the local market. They had some of the huge ones that I had never seen before. So bring one and you are set for 2 or 3 recipes. :o)
