Zucchini Noodles with Ginger and Tomatoes

Paleo, Whole 30 and Vegan zucchini noodles with ginger, garlic and tomatoes. If you don't love ginger you can skip it. It's great either way! I highly recommend sprinkling zoodles with sea salt and allowing to rest for 15 minutes before cooking. This prevents sogginess:)
