It may be holiday season but it doesn’t mean you have to fall out of your healthy lifestyle. Low carb pasta is always in season, especially when it’s made from organic vegetables.  Top it off with homemade turkey meatballs


Zucchini Pasta


What you need:

– 2 tablespoon of oil

Step 1: Peel the skin off the zucchini




Step 2: Using the vegetable slicer (like this one), turn the zucchini into spiral pasta  shapes (super easy)




Step 3: Sautée the zucchini in the olive oil and salt (I added mushrooms for an extra twist) until zucchini is well cooked (feels soft),


Step 4: Top with the pesto sauce or marinara sauce
