Creamy Zucchini Ribbons

2 zucchini
2 garlic cloves, minced
1T olive oil
2 wedges Light Laughing Cow Cheese OR ~2-3T cream cheese

Take zucchini and, using a vegetable peeler or mandolin, cut the length-wise into thin ribbons down to the seeds, discarding the seeds. Cut the ribbons lengthwise in 2 or 3 pieces so that they're the size of linguine noodles. Spread out the zuch ribbons on a paper towel, and sprinkle with a small amount of salt.
Over med heat, saute garlic in olive oil. Once the garlic is golden, add the zucchini and saute, making sure it all gets coated in the oil. Once soft (2 min or so), add EITHER Laughing Cow cheese (I use the light garlic herb) or cream cheese. Stir until cheese melts, and season with thyme and s/p (if needed). Serve immediately.

If you're like me, this is a 1-person serving (5 Weight Watchers PointsPlus by my calculations!)
