Let's Make It
Cover large baking sheet with double layer of paper towels. Use julienne peeler to cut zucchini into long thin strands to resemble spaghetti; spread into single layer on prepared baking sheet. Let stand 4 hours.
Heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add zucchini; cook 2 min., stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
Melt butter in same skillet on medium-low heat. Add garlic and lemon zest; cook 1 min., stirring frequently. Whisk in potato starch; cook and stir 1 min. Gradually stir in milk; cook 2 to 3 min. or until thickened, stirring constantly. Add cream cheese and Romano; cook and stir 1 to 2 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended. Stir in parsley.
Add zucchini; mix lightly. Serve topped with Parmesan and pepper.
If you don’t have a julienne peeler, you can instead use a vegetable peeler to cut the zucchini into thin lengthwise slices. Then, cut each slice into thin strips.
