Pasta with a twist
I love pasta, but not the extra carbs; it’s so hard for me not to reach for seconds. So I had to make a better option. I love volume when it comes to food so I decided to add zoodles to my pasta. Not only are we getting our green veggies in our pasta, but also enjoying the food we love.
I am a firm believer in recreating our favorite recipes for healthy options instead of giving them up. Ground turkey is the protein option I love and prefer, but you can switch it up with ground chicken or beef.
This recipe has become a staple to my meal planning and my family loves it too!
