Low Carb Zucchini Pasta with Garlic and Lemon

By , On , In Entrees, Recipes, Salads, All Recipes

Have you ever tried to make zucchini pasta? If you haven’t attempted to make zoodels yet, I encourage you to explore the world of spiralised veggies. So simple, low calorie, light, easy to make and super-versatile.

Okay, let’s face it: raw zucchini tastes nothing like pasta. But that doesn’t mean we can’t dress them up with our favorite sauce, twirl them around on the fork and sip some red wine with dinner 😉

Anna from Frankie’s Feast  is the creative force behind this ever so simple recipe that requires very little time to prepare.

Since that my cooking and my lifestyle has naturally evolved to be one filled with nourishing foods that make you feel good from the inside out.”
