One thing I absolutely LOVE, is pasta. Italian food is a weakness of mine... the sauce, the garlic, the yummy carb overload! Something I find interesting is that even though pasta tastes so good, it really weighs you down. Even into the next day, not only does the scale weigh heavier, I feel sluggish and weighed down in general.
I'm no saint, on weekends & cheat days I'm all about the pasta, pizza, bread... YUM. But seriously, I crave that stuff everyday of the week.
It's kind of my thing, to "fake" the good stuff, it really gets me through the week without having major cravings. One of my favorite appliances is my SPIRALIZER! That shit makes everything pasta. Just sub noodles for zucchini, in this case.
My secret to a great healthy dish is layers of different and delicious textures. For this dish, we start with a zucchini noodle base, layer homemade sauce, top with roasted mushrooms & parm cheese to finish! Enjoy!
Serves 2-3 People
3 med. Zucchini
Grated Parmesan Cheese
32 oz can crushed tomatoes with basil
1/2 med. Onion
3-4 cloves Garlic
Crushed Red Pepper
Salt & Pepper
You don't even need to cook the zoodles, the heat of the sauce gets them to the right temperature.
I like mushrooms crispy, so cook until they look like this! They add great texture on top of the zoodles.
These silicone lids make cooking so easy, dishwasher safe & so cute! Get them at peachy keen :)
You can use store bought sauce, but I prefer homemade... it doesn't take that long & makes a huge difference!
