Recipe: Zucchini “Pasta”

Zucchini Pasta recipe

Now you can dig into your favorite pasta dish without the empty calories.

All you need is 2 zucchinis per person, a sauce of your choice, and a lean protein, I’m using turkey meatballs.

1. Wash each zucchini and peel with julienne peeler until you get down to the seeds; you only want the outer layers.

2. Microwave for thirty seconds to warm the zucchini ‘noodles’ and add the sauce and protein.

3. Enjoy!
