I have seen the idea of using shredded zucchini as a replacement for pasta. So I dug through my cabinets and found a mandoline, and proceeded to shred my zucchini. I use three large zucchini, shredded them, and added them to 2 tablespoons of butter in my frypan. I seasoned them with garlic salt, pepper, and basil. When they were semi firm I turned off the heat and then served them with marinara sauce and meatballs. I found them to be a completely acceptable substitute for pasta, and much healthier!
