Think Outside the Pasta Box

If you’re trying to lose weight, then pasta might seem like your worst enemy.  Pasta’s empty calories are NOT leading you on a path to better health or weight loss.

Good news – you can still have your favorite pasta dish, but replace the pasta with zucchini!  Crazy talk!

Recently, As Seen on TV has advertised the Veggetti to spiralize any vegetable. I have a different model but the concept is the same: Prepare your veggies to act like pasta.

Give it a try.  You might realize that you don’t “love pasta”, but you actually looove red sauce.  That was the case for me.

Here’s how to make a simple zughetti:

Spiralize zucchini. Toss it in boiling water for 10 seconds. Drain.

Add protein – chicken or ground turkey.

Add your favorite red sauce.



The possibilities are endless! Let me know what recipes you’ve tried.


If you need help along your healthy journey, let me know. I’d love to be a part of it!
