Haven’t you ever noticed that after eating a plate of pasta, you feel tired and sleepy? The reason why is because you’re metabolism is on override trying to digest the heavy pasta.
Since I personally adore Italian food, I had to find a way to still enjoy my favorite pasta dishes but are also healthy and nutritious at the same time.
In my Traditional Spaghetti Zoodle recipe, you will find simple and quick steps to create a delicious tomato sauce to top off your zoodles. The recipe kicks the Italian Spaghetti craving to the curb and leaves you energized after eating versus being tired.
Health benefits from this recipe:
- Zucchini, Squash, Onions, and Carrots: boosts energy, increases intake of fiber, high in vitamins like A, B6, and C, rich in antioxidants, lower cholesterol levels and improved eye health.
- Garlic: combat sickness, helps with reducing the risk of diabetes, and boosts the immune system.
- Basil: excellent source of vitamin K, manganese, iron, vitamin A, and vitamin C.
- Tomato: contributes to heart health, decreases the chances of cardiovascular disease, and protect the eye against light-induced damage.
To get started, have a food chopper or preferred blender to make the sauce and a spiralizer.
