BEEF AND ZUCCHINI SPAGHETTI RECIPE

I know what you are thinking.


Zucchini and spaghetti are not two words often uttered in the same sentence, and some of you are also thinking “nor should they ever be”.


I have a great respect for pasta and all of its doughy carbohydrate rich goodness, but it also has this nasty habit of spiking blood sugar and ultimately converting to fat when not in use.


Darn.


So how can we enjoy the household staple of spaghetti and meatballs without adding to our pant size?


Enter zucchini noodles. Give them a shot before you click away!! The secret is to let them saute for long enough so that they have a crisped brown edge.


I promise it is worth a shot.


Top with Parmesan cheese before serving or leave it off if you are dairy free.


Bon appetit!
