Keto Pasta!


My latest obsession, the Spiral Slicer!! Why? Because sometimes a girl has a real hankering for pasta! I have enjoyed all the splendors the Ketogenic lifestyle offers, the clear-headedness, weight loss, rich delicious foods, clearer complexion, etc. However the one thing I miss more than Reese’s Pieces, merlot, and maple syrup is PASTA!! Angel hair, linguine, and good old-fashioned spaghetti!!! But with all those carbs what’s a girl to do!?! Get her Zoodle on! ( the name even has me chuckling, zoodles, lol!).

What are zoodles? Zucchini that has gone through a spiral slicer and produces long strands that resemble pasta. You’re probably thinking, yeah right!? Let me tell you, I was skeptical too.  But then I tasted it and it was amazing! The key is to cook the zoodles so that they are al dente then the texture is perfect.

So how does one prepare zoodles?

Directions:

  1. Rinse off/clean zucchini (If you wish you can remove the green so that it resembles the look of noodles more).
  2. Place zucchini in spiral slicer and slice
  3. Once the entire zucchini has been sliced get out a pan, place on range on medium heat, drizzle olive oil in pan place zoodles in pan and heat for roughly 4 minutes turning frequently.
  4. Add your “goodies” to your pasta…pesto, marinara sauce (watch for sugar!), shrimp, meatballs, etc.
  5. Enjoy!

Do you have a Spiral Slicer? Any favorite recipes? Please share.
